The Hagiographer’s Workshop: Tools and Methods for the Study of the Sources

The Scuola Superiore di Studi Medievali e Francescani, in collaboration with the Société des Bollandistes (Brussels), offers its students and researchers from other universities a series of online seminars dedicated to hagiographic sources. The project aims to bring students into the “hagiographer’s workshop”, to get to know and familiarise themselves with the tools and working methods, and to learn how to use them in the study of the sources. The seminars are designed as a specialised course of introduction to hagiographic literature, through practical lessons that offer study methods as well as content, working tools together with theoretical elements. The calendar envisages one seminar per month, from October to May, from 16:00 to 18:30. The participants will use the platform for distance teaching provided by the Pontifical Antonianum University.

Minimum admission requirements: possession of a master’s degree in humanities or a licentiate obtained from ecclesiastical faculties; or enrolment in courses to achieve the above qualifications.

Enrolment: from 14 September to 16 October 2020.

The cost for enrolment is € 200.00

The University Secretariat will issue a certificate of attendance – 3 ECTS – to those who have attended all eight seminars and handed in a final paper of at least five dossiers.
