Description

Every day we witness people moving, with them objects and skills, knowledge and experience; either forcibly or willingly; for work or for pleasure. The communities living along the shores of the Mediterranean and the hinterlands of the Balkans during the thirteenth century share many of the characteristics of our contemporary world: military campaigns and religious wars; the intensification of pilgrimage and the relocation of refugees; the shifting of frontiers and the transformation of socio-political orders.

Combining art history, history and archaeology, this session aims to address the complex shifts in power played out in Constantinople and the Holy Land, viewed through the lens of one of the West’s most revered female saint, Mary Magdalene; the dynamics in commercial relationships and trade patterns between the Peloponnese and the pottery production centers of the restored Byzantine Empire and Italian peninsula; the benefits of a systematic survey of prosopographic data for the years immediately after 1204, allowing for an analysis of the networks lost, re-created and newly established by historically attested persons.
