Olin Rice 250

Sacred objects, ideas, and practices were on the move in the medieval and early modern worlds. Our panelists will discuss the itineraries of bone fragments and their containers (reliquaries); ancestral spirits; wampum belts; holy houses, and other objects that shaped global spiritual encounters as they traveled through time and space. Presenters will use examples from Central Africa (Kairn Klieman, University of Houston), Europe (Victoria Morse, Carleton College), and the Americas (Karin Velez, Macalester College). Eric Otremba of Macalester College and the University of Minnesota will serve as discussant.
