Art and Ceremony in the Latin West and the Byzantine East, II International Meeting Magistri Cataloniae, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, April 27, 2016
The II INTERNATIONAL MEETING MAGISTRI CATALONIAE will be held next 27 April 2016 at the Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). This meeting has been organized by the Research Group (GdR UAB) MAGISTRI CATALONIAE and the Research Project “Mobility and Artistic Transfer in Medieval Mediterranean (1187-1388): artists, objects and models-MAGISTRI MEDITERRANEI”, in collaboration with Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres (UAB).
The aim of the II INTERNATIONAL MEETING MAGISTRI CATALONIAE: “Art and Ceremony in the Latin West and the Byzantine East”, is to explore the relationship between civil and religious ceremonies and the art and architecture of both Western and Byzantine traditions over the long centuries since the earliest Christian worship to the Late Middle Ages.
Further to the main purposes of this meeting, papers will address two diverse issues: the reinforcement of ritual practices through imagery and the way how drastic reformations of liturgy and civil observances as well as fashion changes often resulted in the modification of architectural arrangements and ceremonial furnishings.
Organized by Manuel Castiñeiras and Verónica Abenza
