John Eldevik

Associate Professor of History John Eldevik delivered a paper titled “The Strange Journeys of Thiemo of Salzburg: Exile, Martyrdom and Memory” at the annual meeting of the Haskins Society held Nov. 3-5 at Carleton College.

Eldevik’s paper described the evolution of the cult of the Bavarian archbishop, who was killed on Crusade, in the context of images of exile in both narratives of church reform in the Gregorian era, as well as the emerging genre of Crusader romance literature in the 12th century.

The Haskins Society is a scholarly association dedicated to the study of Viking, Anglo-Saxon, Anglo-Norman and early Angevin history, as well as the many other fields included in the scholarly interests of the pioneering American medievalist, Charles Homer Haskins (1870-1937).
