The International Congress Francesc Eiximenis, six hundred years (1409-2009), organized by the Institut de Llengua i Cultura Catalanes de la Universitat de Girona, is the first scientific international meeting devoted to the study of the life and the works of the Franciscan author Francesc Eiximenis (Girona, c. 1330-Perpignan, 1409), on occasion of the sixth century of his death. His political ideas, sociological obervations, prophetic notes, and theological and encyclopedical contents, togheter with the richness of his language, and the magnitude of his manuscript and press transmission, make Eiximenis an extremely interesting author for the scholars of all the fields of the medieval studies. This congress would celebrate the sixth century of his dead to study these aspects, among others, of his figure.
The congress will take place in the Sala de Graus of the Faculty of Arts at the Universitat de Girona, on the November 12-14, 2009.
