The essays contained in this volume work from the assumption that philosophy in Byzantium was not a monolithic doctrinal tradition, but related to a manifold set of intellectual phenomena, institutional frameworks, doctrines, and text traditions that influenced the theological literature in different ways according to the different manifestations and facets of philosophy itself.

Markets feature prominently in recent research. Discussions cover the questions, for example, how a market can be grasp as a place, an event or a mechanism of exchange, or whether premodern economies have just hosted markets or if some of them can even be regarded as market economies. The conference in Basel will now turn to the agents who forged and connected markets. Exchange was done between persons and with the help of persons: Artisans, retailers and poor people tried to better their living conditions by engaging on the market, merchants interconnected different markets, urban personnel such as brokers, men working at the public scales, or the town council as a whole regulated and facilitated exchange.
By focusing on economic practices and the agents who performed them, the conference aims at analyzing the specific characteristics of premodern markets, at studying the reasons why people became active on the market and at scrutinizing the institutions which formed exchange processes and were in turn shaped by them. How did they shape markets and the integration between markets?
We invite proposals for papers that discuss and analyze the agents on markets. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes.

University of Tampere, Questions of toleration, aggression and even hatred based on ethnic diversity have been accentuated in recent times, but multiculturalism in its various forms is far from being confined to the modern world only.
The seventh international Passages from Antiquity to the Middle Ages conference will focus on forms of interaction and methods of negotiation in multicultural, multiethnic, and multilingual contexts. The conference aims at concentrating on social and cultural interaction within and between multi-ethnic and multilingual communities, groups and individuals, minority minorities and majority. Cooperation, toleration, and coexistence was an everyday necessity in Ancient and medieval societies. On occasion, however, these would turn into the opposite: suspicion, conflict, and violence, enhanced by power struggles and prejudices.
All these had a central influence on social dynamics, negotiations of collective or individual identity, definitions of ethnicity, and shaping of legal rules. What was the function of multicultural and multilingual interaction in various contexts: did it create and increase conflicts, or was it rather a prerequisite for survival and prosperity? Our focus lies on society and the history of everyday life. We welcome papers, which have a sensitive approach to social differences: gender, status, and ethnicity.
Actors, experiences, and various levels of negotiations are of main interest. We aim at a broad coverage not only chronologically but also geographically and disciplinarily all branches of Classical, Byzantine and Medieval Studies. If interested, please submit an abstract of words setting out thesis and conclusions for a twenty-minute paper together with your contact details with academic affiliation, address and e-mail by e-mail attachment to the conference secretary, passages uta.

In the last thirty years, new conceptual devices have been developed and honed for use in historical and social contexts. Art was mostly an integrated part of religious life, which is another important desideratum in research. How were the Hanse merchants and craftsmen in Scandinavia integrated into the liturgy and cult of saints of the local church?
The veneration of S. Bridget, her writings, her cult and her monasteries are another example of cultural influences spreading not only from South to North, but also viceversa, via Hanse channels. Scandinavian pilgrims, in turn, took advantage of Hanse routes and transport facilities to get to Wilsnack, Cologne, Rome or Santiago.
