Conference Aims

The Center’s 2017 Conference, The Generative Power of Tradition: A Celebration of Traditio, 75 Years, will feature two sessions on subjects in which the journal Traditio has historically taken a particular interest; Jews and Christians, and Mysticism. In addition, the conference will feature two roundtables, one on editing medieval manuscripts in the digital age and another on popular religion.

The conference will bring together leading scholars in the fields represented, and papers and presentations will address historiography and current research, as well as personal intellectual narratives. We look forward to hearing from our speakers and participants on the ways tradition can inspire, provoke, and lead to new questions, addressed from the vantage point of many different fields and areas of expertise.
