Carmelite Culture, Spirituality and History
York, May 2003
The British Province of Carmelites, a religious order in the Roman Catholic Church, in conjunction with the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York, is holding an academic symposium in York on Friday 16th May. The symposium is on Carmelite culture, history and spirituality, focussing especially on the role of lay-people and women religious in the order from the Middle Ages to the present day. The symposium is being organised to mark the 550th anniversary of the papal letter "Cum Nulla". A mass will be held in York Minster at 11.30am, and the conference runs from 2-5pm. Further details can be found at http://www.carmelite.org/cumnulla/ Anyone interested in making a brief presentation on Carmelite literature, culture, art, liturgy, history, archaeology, is asked to contact the symposium convenor, Mr. Johan Bergstrom-Allen (email@example.com) The Province hopes to publish the proceedings of the symposium, and anyone interested in publishing on the above topics unable to attend the May event is still invited to submit.
