Birkbeck Medieval Seminar Things on the Move

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building

This event has ended.

The Birkbeck Medieval Seminar is an annual event. It is free and open to all scholars of the Middle Ages. It is designed to foster conversation and debate on a particular topic within medieval studies by providing the opportunity to hear new research from experts in the field. We are a welcoming and inclusive environment.  

This year, the theme of the Medieval Seminar is ‘Things on the Move’, and our speakers, drawing on expertise within Bloomsbury, will reflect on materiality, movement and what these reveal about cultural and social changes.


  • Clare Vernon (Birkbeck, University of London), ‘Angels on the Move: The Bronze Doors of Monte Sant’Angelo in Puglia’
  • Rebecca Darley (Birkbeck, University of London), ‘Coming or going? Ideas of movement and understanding Byzantine coins in India’
  • Lloyd de Beer (British Museum), ‘Recusants and Rescued Objects: The St Catherine Altarpiece from Lydiate’
