Presentation

Fenestella is a scholarly, multilingual, and peer-reviewed open access journal. Fenestella publishes scholarly papers on medieval art and architecture, between Late Antiquity and c. 1400, covering the Latin West, the Byzantine East and medieval Islam. The Journal aims to consider medieval artefacts from within, as if seen through a fenestella confessionis, in order to throw light on iconography, function and liturgical practice and space.

Fenestella supports basic research, favouring an inter- and trans-disciplinary approach arising from the horizon and methodology of art history. Papers on wide-ranging themes, critical reviews and studies of micro-topics are all welcome, as long as they contribute to debate at an international level.Fenestella accepts submissions in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish, with abstracts in English.Submissions that satisfy a preliminary review by the editorial staff are then peer-reviewed by anonymous reviewers.After final acceptance and copyediting each article is given a DOI number, to be immediately published and indexed. Articles published during a calendar year are collected in an annual issue.

Fenestella's articles are freely accessible and shareable according to a Creative Commons Attribution CC BY SA 4.0.

We are now accepting proposals for the 2022 Thematic Issue: Configuring Monastic Architectural Settings: Early Medieval Experiments

The planimetric and functional standardisation of monastic architectural settings is an achievement of the Romanesque period, and of Cistercian complexes in particular. During the early Middle Ages, monastic settlements were shaped in a pragmatic manner through the progressive aggregation of spaces; pre-existencing structures and different levels of resources or skills often affected constructions. This approach led to a diversity of forms, sizes, site plans, and functions, though the latter also reflected differing liturgical customs. The third issue of Fenestella will explore this architectural experimention, seeking to identify, and to contextualize, similarities, differences, and trends. We welcome submissions that address specific case studies as well as broader territorial frameworks.

Submission guidelines

Proposals should be uploaded to the Fenestella website, in the section "Submissions" following the instructions.

Submissions on different topics to be published in the section Varia will also be considered.
