Description

Death in the Late Middle Ages: Art and Literature in the Iberian Peninsula.

As one of the main human preoccupations, death has received a privileged treatment in both literature and the arts. Throughout the middle ages, man sought to perpetuate his memory after death by inviting the living into a close collaboration in his salvation. The upper echelons of society strived to create spaces, both textual and artistic, that would allow them to reach this end. This session intends to take a close look at the spaces that were reserved for the representation of death in the great monasteries and cathedrals of Europe, theIberian Peninsulain particular. Approaches considered for inclusion in this session include, but are not limited to, the examination of the literary and plastic representations of death right after the outbreak of the Black Death of 1348, the innovative funerary art of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, or the visual spaces allocated to death by the ruling elite of the late middle ages.
