AbstractAll medievalists may be said to work on memory, because we use sources recalling the past. But not all sources consciously claim to recall and record ideas and activity which are by definition oppositional and contested in their own time. Sources left by heretics and their supporters, or by their opponents and deniers, do just that. From such sources, the historians represented in these three linked sessions explore aspects of memory concerning, time and place and how heresy was located within them; how legal records for heresy were constructed and used to access the heretical past; and the understanding of heresy and heretics as recalled within theological, narrative and polemical texts.
