The 17th International Congress of Medieval Canon Law: Bridging the Divide

The 17th International Congress of Medieval Canon Law, co-sponsored by ICMAC (Iuris Canonici Medii Aevi Consociatio / International Society of Medieval Canon Law) and the University of Kent, will take place in Canterbury from Sunday, 7th July, through Saturday, 13th July 2024. 

These week-long, quadrennial Congresses, alternating sides of the Atlantic, constitute the premier academic conference in the field of medieval canon law. Traditionally they have drawn scholars from many countries, including not only medievalists and canonists, but also those who study related fields, such as Western jurisprudence and legal norms, Roman law, ecclesiastical and papal history, theology and biblical exegesis, manuscript studies, and the history of culture, society, and ideas. 

Medieval canon law contributed to an international system of law for hundreds of years and had a significant impact on the development of Western legal norms, jurisprudence, and judicial procedure, as well as on the history of Christianity, especially the evolution of papal authority.

We look forward to meeting you. If you have any queries regarding the conference, please do not hesitate to contact us:
