Description

An innovative development in the monumental arts of the thirteenth century was the incorporation of saints' lives into the visual programs of buildings, yet the resident imagery of local saints and the local interpretations of universal saints remain understudied topics. This session will consider the ways in which the imagery of saints was incorporated or reinterpreted in the visual programs of cathedrals, thereby constructing careful histories within episcopal contexts.
