The Role of Religion in Early Modern Epic Poetry

Posted By Armando Maggi, Friday, May 20, 2016
Updated: Friday, May 20, 2016

This session aims to investigate the role of religiosity, religious images, characters, tropes, objects, and allusions to sacred texts, in early modern epic poetry. Papers on explicitly religious works are welcome, but this session is primarily interested in discussing the evolving presence of religion in major European authors such as Pulci, Boiardo, Ariosto, Camoes, who did not compose overtly religious, or even spiritual, poems.

Please send your name and affiliation, a paper title (15-word maximum), an abstract (150-word maximum), keywords, and a very brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum), to Armando Maggi,, by June 3rd.
