Event description: 

Liturgy’s Imagined Pasts
Methodologies and Materials in the Writing of Liturgical History Today
June 15 - 18, 2014

The 2014 ISM Liturgy Conference will focus on contemporary challenges in the writing of liturgy’s past. In one form or another, liturgical historiography has long been foundational to scholarly work in liturgical studies, yet has remained under-theorized by historians of liturgy who often simply followed broader historiographic trends. With the 2014 conference, we seek to call attention to the importance of reflecting on the writing of liturgy’s past, taking up questions of methodology as well as contemporary historical research.
