Argument

This International Conference aims to follow up the initiative "Medieval Europe in Motion: the circulation of artists, images, patterns and ideas, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic coast", held in Lisbon in 2013 and organized by the Institute for Medieval Studies of the Nova University Lisbon.

With the aim of creating academic, scientific and organizational synergies, this second edition will be organized in collaboration with two other international institutions, the University of Cantabria and the University of León.

The main scientific of the event, as it was the previous conference, is to analyse the phenomenon of circulation, motion and mobility of people, forms and ideas during the Middle Ages. This time, however, the kind of works under consideration will be illuminated manuscripts. This three-day Conference aims thus to conduct a critical and constructive revision of research on Iberian Book Illumination in the Middle Ages, proposing new questions to be discussed

The works to be surveyed are manuscripts of all kinds, both in form and in content. Our intention is to discuss the following topics:

1) The phenomenon of mobility in Medieval times

Why did it happen? Who travelled? Where did they travel? What reasons motivated the circulation of people? How did mobility influence, stimulate and condition the production of manuscripts?

2) Clients and promoters, both individual and institutional

To what extent did their own travels and vital experiences influence their decisions when ordering new works? How did fashion and taste influence the promoters’ choices?

3) Material authors

How did their itinerant lives influence their creations? To what extent was the production of new works conditioned by the presence of foreign scribes/illuminators in specific geographical contexts? How did they transfer models to new places/media? To what extent were they influenced by the models they saw when passing through other places/contexts and by the tradition they found when arriving at new places?

4) Models

The concepts of copy, reinterpretation, reuse and re-elaboration will under discussion, as well as the confluence of several graphic languages in the same work; we will also address the influence of old models in later works.

5) Image performance

Analysis of several concepts regarding the influence of the phenomena of circulation and mobility on the image performance - the agency, efficiency, effectiveness and power of the image, both in Medieval and later times.

6) Manuscript acquisition

Regarding the postproduction process, that is the sale and circulation of already finished works, several matters will be approached, such as the artistic market, the existence of a luxury market in Medieval times, and the act of collecting manuscripts both in the Middle Ages and in later periods.
