Visiting PhD Student Xavier Costa Badia

Xavier Costa Badia will be a visiting researcher in the IMS until the end of March

Xavier will be at the University of Leeds for three months, until end of March, in a short term scientific mission founded by the COST Action IS1301 ‘New Communities of Interpretation: Context, Strategies and Processes of Religious Transformation in late Medieval and Early Modern Europe’. During these months, he wants to compare the role of medieval English and Catalan monasteries in the organization of their surroundings and delve into the relationships between these monasteries and their lay neighbours, looking for patterns between the two territories.
