Meeting of minds

One of the highlights of this year’s International Medieval Congress was an evening of French stage comedies from the 15th and 16th centuries.

American medievalists Simonetta Cochis, Don Perret and Yvonne LeBlanc were among the players who performed four farces at St Chad’s Church, with audiences drawn from the 1,230 scholars who converged on Leeds for the four-day event, the largest of its kind in Europe.

Organised annually since 1994 by the International Medieval Institute, the congress drew delegates from 40 countries for a packed programme of sessions themed around ‘Time and eternity’.
