This event is co-sponsored by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies.

The Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium (TRRC) offers a yearly programme of lectures on topics in the period 1350-1700, presented by scholars from Toronto, southern Ontario, and the north-eastern USA, in partnership with the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies.

The lectures are free and open to the public, but the TRRC requests that regular attenders puchase an inexpensive membership to help with the costs of production.  For further information about this event and the TRRC, please contact Professor Konrad Eisenbichler, Secretary-Treasurer, Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium.
