The Thirty-Ninth Annual Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
30-31 March 2012
The University of the South, Sewanee, TN

Theme: After Constantine: Religion and Secular Power in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages

In recognition of the 1700th anniversary of the traditional "conversion" of Constantine, this conference will explore the interrelationship of religion and secular power in the late antique and medieval worlds. Attention will be given to the relationship of "church" and "state", the role of the church as holder of secular power, the politics of sainthood, the uses of patronage, the relationship of religion and power in non-Christian contexts, and any other appropriate issues.
