Cultural Memory in Late Antiquity - 02-03-04-05/07/2018, Leeds (England)
Problems of cultural memory abound in late antiquity. Issues like the precise import of myths of origins for ‘barbarian’ groups, the memory of councils, fathers and holy men for confessional disputes, or classical culture in a Christian Empire, have provoked lively (and often controversial) debate. Indeed, the existence of late antiquity as a distinct period could be seen as rooted in a claim about cultural memory: the persistence of aspects of the cultural inheritance of the ancient world as a framework through which people understood their world into the later centuries of the first millennium CE.
