Description

It is considered somewhat axiomatic that medieval objects, manuscripts, and great churches provide crafted confessions of belief and desire. Rather than privileging the alleged intellectual motivations of the manufacturer, however, in this session papers are sought which interrogate the role of the object or monument in cultural history. In particular, papers which address the interconnected nexus of ties which link great churches to their communities, pilgrims to their objects of veneration, artisans to their techniques, families to their dynastic nobility or medieval towns, or artists to guilds and changing modalities of artistic production are sought. Papers are welcome which examine the creative opportunity of the work of art or architecture to participate in or regulate the evolution of viable modalities of creative expression, establishing the parergonal parameters for subsequent semantic investigation.
