AbstractThis session forms a coherent whole together with Session I: Inheritance and Session III: Imagination. All three sessions focus on how the living sought to negotiate the intersection between life and death throughout the Middle Ages. Through these sessions, we aim to further a comparative understanding of conceptions of the afterlife within the coherence and diversity of the Medieval Church. The theme of Session II is intercession. The papers presented in this session will consider intercession through diverse approaches to the theology, liturgy, eschatology, and materiality of the border between life and death.
