Domestic Devotions in the Early Modern World, 1400-1800

Event Date: 
09 Jul 2015 to 11 Jul 2015

While research into religious practice during this period often focuses on institutions and public ceremonies, it is clear that the home played a profound role in shaping devotional experience, as a place for religious instruction, private prayer and contemplation, communal worship, and the performance of everyday rituals.
