School of Humanities and Social Sciences
These thirty-two papers from the 7th International Medieval Congress held in Leeds in 2000, wrestle with the complex and difficult subject of time and eternity in the medieval period. They reflect different scholarly approaches to the subject and reveal a variety of medieval concepts of time and its function. The papers are arranged according to seven themes: Time, its computation and the use of calendars; Jewish concepts of time and redemption; Christian philosophies of eternity and time; Monastic and clerical conceptions; Literary representations; Time and art; The end of the world.
