Medieval nunneries in southern Germany
Project management at the University of Würzburg:
The current lack of research should be deminished by a conference. Many Medieval causes such as the question of the status "nun" or "canoness", the supportive noble families, and the convent's social constallation will be discussed on the bases of southern German examples. Another point of interest will be the everyda life in nunneries, the level of education, and the knowiedge of Latin.
The conference, which will be held end of September 2005 in "Frauenchiemsee, is a cooperation with the University of Munich. The papers will be published.
Projekt period: from 08.2005 to 08.2007
