Thirteenth Annual Miller Lecture: Dr. Elaine Stratton Hild

None

University of St. Thomas Department of Theology presents:

13th Annual Archbishop J. Michael Miller Lecture

Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 7:30-9:00PM

UST Cullen Hall – 4001 Mt. Vernon St.

 

“Singing Through the Dying: Medieval Ritual for the End of Life”

Presented by: Dr. Elaine Stratton Hild

Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany

and Fellow, Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study

 

For centuries of European history, the sound of singing was customarily-and ideally-the final sensation of a human life. This presentation explores the rite for the dying included in the thirteenth-century Franciscan manuscript Chicago Newberry 24. This manuscript preserves not only the texts spoken at the bedside, but also the melodies prescribed for the moment of death. The lecture will include performances of these chants by St. Basil's Student and Faculty Schola.
