Anselm’s Biographer: A day conference on the impact of Richard Southern’s St Anselm and his biographer 50 years on from its publication

Wednesday 29th October 2014

 A one-day conference on the great 20th-century Oxford medievalist, Sir Richard Southern, was held on 25th October 2014.

The event was hosted by Blackfriars, organised by the International Association for Anselm Studies and supported by St John's College, Oxford. The conference focused particularly on Southern's writings on Saint Anselm of Canterbury, and also on the influence that his work on Anselm had on Southern as an academic and in his Christian life. Two of the speakers, Gillian Evans and Alexander Murray, both close associates of Southern, provided the audience with many insights into his life, and his work on Anselm. The other speakers, David Luscombe, Giles Gasper and Samu Niskanen, looked at the influence that Southern has had on Anselm Studies. The event finished with a lively panel discussion, in which all of the speakers and many members of the audience took part.
