Ghost Stories for Medieval Nuns: Faith and Religion in Twelfth-Century Europe

Professor Martha Newman will discuss “Ghost Stories for Medieval Nuns: Faith and Religion in Twelfth-Century Europe.” Medieval monks loved to tell ghost stories, but usually they told such stories to other men.  This talk explores what we can learn about the practices of medieval religious women from the stories that male monks wrote for them.

The event will take place Wednesday, October 23 from 6:30-8 pm at The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center, located at 1165 Angelina Street, Austin, Texas. There will be a live flute performance by Celil Refik Kaya prior to the talk. Light refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.
