  • Spiritual care of the aged soul: shelter, assistance and health practices aimed at elderly people; assistance practices were developed to shelter them and take care of them.
  • Long-live life within religious institutions (monasteries, convents, beguinages, canonical collegiates, parishes).
  • Old age and ageing in monasteries, understanding them as places chosen as personal projects of ageing.
  • Discourses on old age and spirituality: analysis of the iconographic and text representations with reference to old women and men saints, monks, nuns, mystics, beguines, bishops, or other religious figures.
  • Devotional practices and ageing in urban communities: charitable activities; confraternities as important venues of spiritual riches, and social capital; testamentary bequests.
  • Secular clergy and old age.
  • Non-claustral communities and individuals and old age (beguines, tertiaries, dissident groups).
  • Non-Christian spiritualities and ageing in the medieval context (Judaism, Islam).
