Group GFM (2007 - 2015) now integrated in:
  • Thematic Line

    Medieval & Early Modern Philosophy
  • 2nd Annual FIDEM Conference

    Warburg Institute, University of London, School of Advanced Study, 15-16 June, 2007.

    Organised jointly by the Warburg Institute, London and the Gabinete de Filosofia Medieval, Porto
    With the support of the Department of Philosophy, University of Porto and the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia

    It has long been customary to say that there was a rupture between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Recent scholarship, however, has tended to question whether the break was so drastic and different scholars have placed the break at different points of time, often depending on the country concerned. This conference will bring together a select group of scholars, both those of confirmed reputations and younger scholars who have shown great potential, to explore what continuities or ruptures there were. It will consist of a number of case studies, rather than address the question in a general way. An important element of the conference will be discussion, for which the group of scholars who are coming together for the meeting of the committee of the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d'Études Médiévales (FIDEM), to be held just after the conference, will provide a forum.
