Monastic Sciences: Medicina, Mechanica, Philosophia. 31 Mar 2015

Monastic Sciences: Medicina, Mechanica, Philosophia is a conference that re-considers the contribution of medieval monks to medicine, science and technology. It explores new approaches to the theoretical development and practical application of biomedical and technical knowledge within and beyond religious communities. Of particular interest is the contribution made by medieval monks to the wider diffusion of medical and scientific knowledge. How and in what circumstances was biomedical and tech nical knowledge applied beyond the boundaries of the religious precinct? How exclusive was such knowledge was thought to be? How did it compare to lay scientific understanding of the period? This event will be held over two days at the University of Leeds, with contributions welcomed from postgraduates and early-career researchers of all disciplines. The two keynote speakers are Peregrine Horden (Royal Holloway) and Sophie Page (UCL), both of whom have a strong track record in the study of medi cine and natural philosophy in and beyond the cloister. The conference is the third in a successful series on monasticism organized by postgraduate students in the Institute for Medieval Studies at Leeds. This is the first time that medicine and natural philosophy have featured as the theme of the conference.
