Laudes regiae: In Praise of Kings. Medieval Ruler Acclamations, Liturgy, and Power

Faculty Tower, Room #409

The image of Christ as King, apart from the New Testament book of Revelation, is not a prevalent New Testament image. Through the course of the Middle Ages, however, medieval acclamations, the Laudes regiae, based upon the "kingship" Psalms of the Old Testament, increasingly project Christ as King, rather than the "suffering servant," and conflate this image liturgically with that of the temporal ruler--a fascinating juxtaposition of influence from Late Antiquity, the biblical scriptures, and power politics.

Dialectics of Medicine and Law in Late-Medieval England: Hemorrhoids and Equity

Faculty Tower, Room #409

Doctors and lawyers share the mission to restore and maintain the “well-being” of the patient and client. They also share the way of thinking about the roles of reason and experience in medicine and law, as evidenced by two classic late-medieval texts: John Arderne’s Fistula in Ano (1376) and John Fortescue’s De Laudibus Legum Anghae (1450 s).
