Description

Margot Fassler's _The Virgin of Chartres: History Making Through Liturgy and the Arts_ (Yale University Press, 2010) introduces the many groups of people who created a sense of the past (those who "made history") in one community, but by extension, in community after community, in the Latin West. Fassler deploys an interdisciplinary approach, one that has been rarely used before, to create a multi-level institutional history. In this session in honor of the achievement of Fassler's book, we have sought to do more than simply sing its praises, though they are certainly well deserved. We have assembled a panel of four papers from scholars who have creatively and influentially redeployed Fassler's and other similarly interdisciplinary, methodological approaches to medieval ecclesiastical sites. This session has given preference to papers that bring a site's art and liturgical sources into dialogue with its other textual remains. We have aimed to represent a variety of geographical locales - from Cluny to Constantinople - in the hope of stimulating a lively discussion among our panelists and audience, and of ever refining our ways of working interdisciplinarily to understand the way the past was made for and within particular communities.
