Hilary Powell 'Picturing Thought: Voices, Visions and Demonic Encounters in the Early Middle Ages

This podcast features Dr Hilary Powell on 'Picturing Thought: Voices, Visions and Demonic Encounters in the Early Middle Ages' and was recorded on 13 March 2014 at Hatfield College, Durham University. Hilary's presentation focuses on the hagiography of St Dunstan, exploring how the demonic encounters found in the different texts encouraged different ways of engaging with the narrative and supplied monastic readers with innovative cognitive tools to ward off signs of mental distraction and intrusive thoughts. It also draws attention to the significance that hearing demonic voices had in the world of the medieval cloister.
