Event time: 
Monday, February 2, 2004 - 4:30pm
Event description: 

Part of the ISM’s Liturgy Symposium

ISM Great Hall, 409 Prospect Street, New Haven


Medieval historians in the tenth through the twelfth centuries were of many stripes, and hence created the past using a great variety of materials. This paper outlines the importance of liturgical sources and methods, as well as the roles of cantors and other liturgists, in both the recreation and representations of the past, as well as in the writing of history.

Margot Fassler is Director of Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Robert S. Tangeman Professor of Music History
