Pablo Acal

Pablo Acal is Predoctoral Fellow at the University of Cantabria (UC) in the Historical Sciences Department, where his research is funded by a ‘Concepción Arenal’ scholarship.
He is working on a thesis entitled ‘Obispos, monacato y hagiografía: una aproximación comparada a la figura y funciones de los obispos/abades en la Península Ibérica e Inglaterra (siglos XI-XII)’, under the supervision of Leticia Agúndez (UC) and Francesca Tinti (UPV/EHU).
His research focuses on bishops with abbatial responsibilities from a hagiographic and historiographical perspective, bearing in mind their symbolic representation and archetypal character, as well as their ecclesiastical career and creation of power networks.
