Early Modern Orders and Disorders: Religious Orders and British and Irish Catholicism

Wednesday, 28 June 2017 to Friday, 30 June 2017

Venue: University of Notre Dame's Global Gateway, London.

The third biannual Early Modern British and Irish Catholicism conference, jointly hosted by Durham University and the University of Notre Dame, will concentrate on the relationship between religious orders and British and Irish Catholicism. A wealth of recent scholarship has focussed on the activities of both male and female religious orders following the upheavals of the sixteenth century. This conference will consider the relationship between religious orders and those on the western peripheries of Catholic Europe. These relationships are to be explored in the widest possible framework, including through the religious orders as links between English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh Catholics, and the global Church; British and Irish religious in exile; the presence of members of religious orders in Britain and Ireland; memories of pre-Reformation religious orders such as in the landscape; religious orders in the non-Catholic imagination; the views of Britain and Ireland held by religious orders and their international membership. The timeframe being considered is broad, from ca. 1530 to 1800.
