Description

Medieval images contain messages that should inform, teach or influence their beholders. This is particularly true with regard to visual representations for a wider audience in public space. They often show a specifically didactic character that was meant to influence the daily life of the beholders. The papers in the session will show this concerning different periods and areas and regarding audiences from distinct social groups.
