Ian Johnson Participates in COST Action IS1301

From 21 to 23 September 2017, Ian Johnson participated in the final meeting of the EU-funded network of 25 countries, COST, the European Cooperation in Science & Technology. The event this past September was COST Action IS1301, focusing on “New Communities of Interpretation (1350-1570)”. This focus brought together experts on late medieval and early modern Europe, organised around the inclusion and exclusion of the laity in religious experience.
