>The Spread of Christianity in Early Medieval Northern Europe
>
>This is a panel on the spread of Christianity in Northern Europe
>(including the British Isles, Gaul, Germany and Scandinavia) between the
>3rd century and the 8th century AD.  Any topic related to the spread of
>Christianity to non-Christian areas (some examples could include the
>spread of Christian thought among elite, the adoption of Christianity
>within urban spaces, and the conversion of the rural pagan countryside)
>will be considered.  Preference will be given to papers which emphasize
>aspects of the Christianization process which have not received a great
>deal of scholarly attention.
>
>Our second session is:
>
>Those Who Stayed Behind: The Norse in Scandinavia during the Viking Age
>
>This is a panel on the Scandinavian countries themselves in the Viking
>Age, rather than focusing on the Vikings themselves.  Papers are invited
>to address the archaeology, literature, linguistics and languages,
>religion(s), history, and other related fields that touch on those
>nations from the late eighth century through the end of the eleventh
>century.  Preference will be given to papers emphasizing aspects of the
>field that have not received a great deal of scholarly attention.

>All abstracts are due Sept. 1, 2005.  Please send submissions to Larry
