Dominicans and the Liturgy in Medieval Paris: April 5-6, 2019
Reid Hall
4 Rue de Chevreuse
75006 Paris

After arriving in Paris in the early 13th century, Dominican friars became
embedded in Parisian intellectual, cultural, and religious life.  At the
Priory of Saint-Jacques, in the midst of their study and prayer, the
Dominicans were at the forefront of Parisian developments in theology,
liturgy, and manuscript production. In this conference, we will consider
the development of Dominican liturgical practice in medieval Paris,
exploring both the Dominican liturgy in itself and its connections to
theology, book history, and related areas.

20-minute paper submissions are welcomed on any topic related to the
conference theme. Possible topics include studies of individual Dominican
manuscripts with a Parisian connection (including the exemplar manuscripts
Rome, Santa Sabina, XIV L1 and London, British Library add. 23935);
comparison of Dominican liturgical practices with other liturgical
traditions in medieval Paris; and consideration of the influence of liturgy
on Dominican sacramental theology.

Submit abstracts of 500 words by email to the conference organizers, Susan
Boynton (slb184 -at- and Innocent Smith, OP (innocent.smith
-at- by December 1, 2018.
