7 - 10 August 2002
Stift Admont, Austria

This is an archived version of the conference website.

The monastery of Admont in central Austria was one of the most important spiritual, cultural and intellectual centers in the high Middle Ages. Its magnificent library still houses an extensive collection of manuscripts - a rich resource both for the history of the monastery and for the broader history of medieval religious life. The goal of the conference is to bring together an international group of scholars whose work touches on various aspects of twelfth- century Admont.

The conference will be conducted in German and English, and papers will be distributed in advance. German speakers will provide an English summary of their papers, and English speakers, a German summary. Most sessions will include the presentation of two papers, each approximately thirty minutes long, followed by response and open questions.

Between the morning and afternoon sessions there will be ample time for scholars to work in the library and archives.

There will an excursion to Pürgg and Frauenberg bei Admont on the second day of the conference.

The conference will be held at the Stift in beautiful Admont, Austria.
