Description

This session aims to bring together art historians of the medieval west and Byzantium in order to create a cross-cultural dialogue concerning pictorial hagiography encompassing a variety of supports (wall paintings, manuscripts, jewellery, reliquaries…). We hope to use an art historical perspective to explore the construction and functions of this iconography, such as its role in the shaping of communities throughout the medieval world and the formation of holy identity. The discussion of the visual language through which these images are communicated will foster questions concerning the place of this material that has long been neglected in hagiographic studies.
