Forced Movement in Late Antiquity, c. 300-700 - 06-07-08/04/2017- London (England)
Mobility of individuals and groups was a defining feature of late antiquity and underpinned the cultural, social and religious transformations of the ancient world in this period. Findings from the project that sponsors this conference, ‘The Migration of Faith: Clerical Exile in Late Antiquity’, suggest that forced physical movement due to clerical exile – the primary way in late antiquity to deal with wayward Christian clergy – led to encounters with profound cultural or social consequences to exiled clerics themselves, their households and original communities, the individuals and communities they met or constituted, and ultimately to the dissemination of knowledge and to new ways of mentally mapping the late antique world.
