Monastic Sciences: Medicina, Mechanica, Philosophia — The Leeds Monasticism Conference, May 2015
Termin: 8./9. Mai 2015
Ort: University of Leeds
Aus der Ankündigung:
Each year this conference concentrates on a different aspect of the religious enterprise, inviting fresh perspectives on how those in consecrated life conducted their professed mission(s). The focus for the upcoming event is the way that religious life, particularly monasticism, accommodated what in the modern world is termed ‘science’. The monks and other religious of medieval Europe were in a privileged position to study humanity’s interaction with the natural world, and did so by pursuing a great and varied range of disciplines, notably those pertaining to medicine (medicina), technology (ars mechanica), and the rationalisation of the natural world (philosophia; philosophia naturalis).
