CALL FOR PAPERS: Carthusian conference in Gaming (AT) 10/3 - 12/3/2017

The Charterhouse of Gaming as a Reservoir of Memory and a Monument of Austrian History
Between March 10th and 12th 2017 the Institut für Österreichische Geschichtsforschung der Universität Wien and the Franciscan University of Steubenville will host a conference at the Charterhouse in Gaming.
The conference will focus on two primary areas. The first is the history of the Library of the Charterhouse. Emphasis shall be given to the Library itself and her manuscript holdings, while other topics for discussion will include the Library’s architectural space, fresco program and decoration. The second area of focus will be the history of the Charterhouse. Various topics concerning the long story of the site and community shall be examined – such as the monastery’s relationship with the surrounding area or the development of the house’s manorial system. In addition, crossing over between the two areas of focus – a survey of Anton Steyerer‘s Commentarii pro historia Alberti II. ducis Austriae cognomento Sapientis and the history of the Charterhouse of Gaming Pandectae seculares from 1732, for example – may also yield subjects for discussion.
