Research project

“Al-Andalus, the Hispanic Kingdoms and Egypt: Art, Power and Knowledge in the Medieval Mediterranean. Exchange Networks and their impact on the Visual Culture”(HAR2013-45578-R)


The aim of this conference is to deepen into the various insights of the construction of spaces and the production of works of art linked to sciences and knowledge in the Middle Ages, throughout different geographical, cultural, and social realms within the Mediterranean area.


1. “Mirror of Princes: paideia, uirtus and adab” is focused on secular places of knowledge.

2. “Science and its usages” deals with those spaces and networks where medieval science was developed.

3. “Books and their spaces” is devoted to the production of Medieval manuscripts and the places for books.

4. “Masters, sages, and patrons” analyzes the relationship between patrons, artisans, and knowledge producers, paying special attention to synergies of all those linked to scientific development.
