William H. York - "Caring for Animals in the Middle Ages" Dr. William H. York, candidate for assistant professor of history at WOU, will give a talk entitled "Caring for Animals in the Middle Ages": Animal husbandry was typically not of much interest to university scholars during the Middle Ages. However, the care of animals was of great importance to members of the aristocracy, particularly when it came to the health of their expensive and/or difficult to train warhorses, falcons, and hunting dogs. It is perhaps not surprising, therefore, that treatises written by lay nobles and directed toward an aristocratic reading public began to appear during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, focusing on the care of these important animals. Although aimed at a non-specialist audience and written in vernacular languages, such texts often sought to incorporate contemporary medical theories derived from learned Latin sources on human medicine. As a result, the authors reveal an effort to bring together their practical knowledge with theoretical learning and offer insight into what we might consider the rise of ?veterinary? medicine as a learned discipline. They also provide an opportunity to evaluate medieval attitudes towards animals and their beliefs about the animal-human divide. In this talk we will examine the variety of information available on animal care in two kinds of sources from this period: texts on animal husbandry and hunting manuals.

Thursday, February 14 12:00 noon - 01:00 pm

Icelandic Church and Society, 1300-1550 Dr. Elizabeth Swedo, candidate for assistant professor of history at WOU, will give a talk entitled: "No One Becomes A Bishop Unbeaten: Icelandic Church and Society, 1300-1550": The encounters between Bishop J?n Gerreksson (d. 1433) and the clergy and laity of his diocese highlight one extreme in the continually tumultuous relationship between the Icelandic community and the universal Roman Church in the late Middle Ages. Following the annexation of Iceland by Norway in 1262-4, Icelanders experienced dramatic reorganization of their society, including their church. Conscious of their peripheral role in European affairs, medieval Icelanders sought to preserve their local practices and traditions while integrating themselves into the framework of the Roman church. Religious reforms in Iceland both mirrored the intense religious flux in Europe in this period and did so in a uniquely Icelandic way. As one case within a broader study of late medieval Icelandic religious culture, Bishop J?n Gerreksson?s episcopate provides an understanding of how and when Icelanders conformed to the larger Christian community and when they privileged their own culture.
