Oxford conference on the Dominican Order's influence in the Middle Ages

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.

The conference program can be found here and the abstracts of the conference papers can be found here.
