Welcoming the Stranger

The feeling of being a stranger is not unfamiliar to the frequent traveler. It's a concept that has been on my mind a lot lately too. That made it a sure thing that this event would catch my eye:

Welcoming the Stranger in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages

The period from late antiquity to the early middle ages was one of great social movement, of both individuals and people groups. How did people respond to demands made upon them for hospitality and charity?
