On the 2018 edition of the History Night (Nacht van de Geschiedenis), the largest historical event in Flanders, Prof. Steven Vanderputten will give a lecture on medieval religious women. The lecture will be in Dutch and is entitled 'Arme dutsen? Religieuze vrouwen in een mannelijke kerk aan het einde van het eerste millennium'.

This lecture provides the audience with a preview into Prof. Vanderputten's forthcoming book Dark Age Nunneries: The Ambiguous Identity of Female Monasticism, 800–1050 , which will soon be published by Cornell University Press.

Attendance is free but you do have to register with the organisers. Please check with
