The Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University, in partnership with the Canonesses of the Holy Sepulchre, invites applications for a 12-month Fellowship in the History of Catholicism (1640–present day).
This fixed-term Fellowship has been made possible by a contribution from the English Canonesses of the Holy Sepulchre. The English Community of this Order was founded in the mid-seventeenth century in Liège before coming to England and settling eventually at New Hall in Essex in 1799. The community’s historic archive and library was last year deposited in the Special Collections of Durham University and is currently being catalogued.
The successful candidate will have access to this largely unexplored archive and library dating back to the Community’s foundation. The collection includes spiritual works and ceremonial instructions, financial and management records, as well as biographical writings and some correspondence, all of which cover the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as well as the modern era.
Some items relating to the material culture of the Community in Liège also form part of the collection. The Fellowship has been created to facilitate research into any aspect of the Canonesses’ archive and/or library, and is not set to a particular chronological period. For example, the successful candidate may choose to focus on the early modern exile period, or the modern period in England.
