Romanesque Art: Patrons and process

catedral de Girona relleu del claustre-3

The third International Romanesque Conference, organized by the British Archeological Association and MNAC in collaboration with our research project Magistri Cataloniae, will take place from 7th to 9th April 2014 at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.

The conference focuses on the patronage in individual and institutional terms and means to emphasize all the processes related to it. The congress represents a unique opportunity in order to have a direct approach to the new trends in the study of Romanesque art as a whole in all its cultural and geographical diversity, from the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem to Norman England. Furthermore, it will consider some paradigmatic continental examples (Papacy, Empire) as well as the nature of the agents involved in the making of Catalan Romanesque art, including visits to the Romanesque monuments.
