5. ISAS (International Society of Anglo-Saxonists) 2005: "England and the Continent"
The main theme of the conference, "England and the Continent," focuses on the historical, religious, archaeological, literary and linguistic relations between England and the continent. This includes among other things the Christianization of England from Rome and the continuing influence of Rome (Augustine, later Theodore of Tarsus), the Anglo-Saxon missionaries in Germany (e.g., Willibrord, Bonifatius, Willibald), the reception of Anglo-Saxon scholars and authors on the continent (Aldhelm, Bede, Alcuin, etc.), literary imports from the continent (Genesis B), translations and adaptations of continental sources by Alfred, Aelfric, Wulfstan and others, allusions to Offa in Beowulf etc. As always, the conference is not devoted exclusively to the main theme, and papers on other topics relevant to Anglo-Saxon England are welcome. In particular, we hope to have one or two papers on exciting recent discoveries such as the Prince of Prittlewell.
