University of London's Caroline Goodson Presents "Power in the Medieval Countryside"
Start Date: 2/7/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 2/7/2013End Time: 6:30 PM
Event Description

Professor Caroline Goodson (Birkbeck College, University of London) will present her recent work, “Power in the Medieval Italian Countryside: The Village and Monastery of Villamagna (Lazio).”

The excavations of the imperial villa at Villamagna have shown much more than the life and death of a Roman estate.  Having focussed not only on the Roman remains but also the medieval abbey of S. Pietro, the recent dig has demonstrated the dynamism of the site through the Middle Ages and the different roles played by the antique legacy of the site in key moments in the history of Central Italy.  This paper, by the field director of one of the largest recent excavations of the Mediterranean longue durée, will present the findings with particular attention to social hierarchies between the laity and monastery, among the monks, their bishop and the papacy, and also among the laity working the monastery's lands.

Professor Goodson is the author of The Rome of Pope Paschal I (817-824): Papal Power, Urban Renovation, Church Rebuilding and Relic Translation (Cambridge UK, 2010) and numerous articles and reviews of works on early medieval history and archaeology in Italy.
