Event description: 

In this talk, ISM fellow, Dr. Samantha Slaubaugh, will argue that a narrative in the hagiography for Douceline of Digne, a thirteenth century Provençal beguine, was crafted to portray an ecstatic liturgy of dedication of the newly constructed beguine House of Roubaud in Marseille. In this hagiographic narrative, the innovative rite of dedication encourages the beguines to enact joy, consolation, and reverence in response to the protection and presence of God with their community.

This talk is part of the Liturgy Symposium at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
