Description

Traditional histories often privilege the moment of an object’s origin, whether it be the design of a building, the production of a manuscript, or the creation of decorative arts, ritual or mundane. Yet medieval objects have long and expansive lives that defy the period and geographic boundaries set by academic disciplines. Many medieval objects have extended prehistories emerging from their sites and contexts of creation, and most medieval objects have undergone a variety of interventions and adaptations since coming into being. The lives of these objects have been further extended through historiography and digital media. In this, the first of three AVISTA sponsored sessions, papers consider issues of restoration.
