AccueilCathedrals and Mosques: Building Urban Memories and Landscapes in Southern Europe (12th - 14th centuries)

*  *  *

Publié le lundi 20 novembre 2017 par João Fernandes

Résumé

This international conference will discuss interdisciplinary questions regarding the importance of cathedrals and mosques in the definition of memory and urban landscape in the medieval Mediterranean from the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries. Our research aims at analysing the role these two buildings played in configuring the urban fabric of the Mediterranean world. One of our primary objectives is to understand how these buildings defined medieval landscape and urban space. How did they modify and condition the social and functional organisation of their urban surroundings? What architectural features contributed to their place in civic memory (decoration, architectural style and building techniques)? We are interested in the place they occupy in their cities’ urban planning and topography.

Argument

This international conference will discuss interdisciplinary questions regarding the importance of cathedrals and mosques in the definition of memory and urban landscape in the medieval Mediterranean from the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries. Our research aims at analysing the role these two buildings played in configuring the urban fabric of the Mediterranean world. One of our primary objectives is to understand how these buildings defined medieval landscape and urban space. How did they modify and condition the social and functional organisation of their urban surroundings? What architectural features contributed to their place in civic memory (decoration, architectural style and building techniques)? We are interested in the place they occupy in their cities’ urban planning and topography. Our analysis will also focus on the specific functions of individual constructions and their social and symbolic impact. We hope this conference will stimulate further reflection on the importance of written texts produced in cathedrals and mosques (including documents, manuscripts and painted or sculpted inscriptions). Moreover, the workshop provides an opportunity to discuss questions relating to the liturgical and visual memory of these buildings and the manner in which they reinforce their cities’ social and institutional imprint. Finally, we seek to understand how and when, within the geographic framework of Europe and the Mediterranean, these urban structures and places of Christian prayer were integrated on the Islamic stage and vice versa.
