Preacher, Reformer, Witch-Hunter

Thursday November 15 at 5:30 pm
Marsh Room, Billings Library
University of Vermont

On November 15 at 5:30 pm, Michael Bailey, professor of history at Iowa State University, will speak on “Preacher, Reformer, Witch-Hunter: Johannes Nider and the Religious World of the Late Middle Ages.” Nider was an important fifteenth-century theologian, reformer, and author. The talk is part of the 2018-2019 College of Arts and Sciences Medieval Studies Lecture Series, and is sponsored by the Humanities Center, the Department of History, and Silver Special Collections. Special Collections has a 1511 copy of Nider’s De lepra morali, as well as a manuscript copy of his collection of sermons, Sermones de tempore and Sermones de sanctis, circa 1445-1450.

Professor Bailey’s research focuses on late medieval religious history, particularly the history of magic, witchcraft, and superstition, as well as heresy and religious reform. His books include Fearful Spirits, Reasoned Follies: The Boundaries of Superstition in Late Medieval Europe (2013).

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Silver Special Collections at uvmsc@uvm.edu or (802) 656-2138.
