The Society for Confraternity Studies
The Society for Confraternity Studies is composed of scholars interested in lay religious movements and organizations in Medieval and Early Modern Europe (12th to 17th cent.). It was founded in 1989 in Toronto, Canada. The Society sponsors sessions on confraternities at major conferences, organizes occasional conferences itself, publishes a biannual bulletin, Confraternitas, and gathers publications on the subject of confraternities. Books and offprints donated by members and friends of the Society are kept in a "Confraternities Collection" at the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies (Toronto). All the donated items are entered in the "Books Received" rubric of the bulletin, and are made available for consultation at the CRRS.
To become a member, simply subscribe to the Society's bulletin, Confraternitas.
The Society also maintains a listserv (e-mail mailing list), to which all members are encouraged to subscribe.
