About this Event
755 Library Road, Rochester, NY 14626
Attend a lecture by Professor Lydia Kertz, professor of English at SUNY Geneseo. Professor Kertz will explore the seminal 14th-century poem Piers Plowman and its arguments for who was able to achieve salvation, and how. In this talk, she will focus on the kinds of knowledge required for an individual to be saved, and how a layperson -- particularly a relatively uneducated plowman like Piers -- might be able to acquire that knowledge within the context of the Latinate medieval Catholic church.
Sponsored by the Rossell Hope Robbins Library and Koller-Collins Center at the University of Rochester.
