Description

This panel contributes to conversations that explore Jerusalem as a distant place from which medieval imaginings arose. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the panel will explore this medieval imagining of Jerusalem from Late Antiquity to the Late Middle Ages across texts, art, architecture and material objects. This panel seeks to bring together conversations about, for example, pilgrimage accounts, relics, and architectural miniatures of the Holy Sepulchre, to explore how representations of the Holy City infused a medieval imagination of the far away Jerusalem. In so doing, the panel will participate in ongoing scholarly conversations about the perception and imagination of Jerusalem.
