A conference entitled "The Influences of the Dominican Order in the Middle Ages" will be held (primarily) at the Taylor Institution at the University of Oxford this September 10-12. Here is the description from the conference website:
From its modest foundations in 1216, the Dominican Order grew rapidly in the first century of its existence, establishing itself across Europe as a learned Order of Preachers. This interdisciplinary conference will explore the influences of the Dominican Order on all aspects of medieval life, encompassing the large-scale influences of the Order and the legacy of its prominent figures, as well as the impact that the Order had on those that came into contact with it.
