Notions of movement and mobility are central to understanding many
aspects of medieval society. Essentially, movement involves connections
across time, objects, people, and space. The essays in this volume
investigate how the circulation, motion, and mobility of people,
patterns, and ideas influenced artistic creation between the 6th and
15th centuries – from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic coast.
Scholarship in the volume manifests the international scope of current
research on artistic and cultural circulation and mobility in the
European Middle Ages. In it, readers are presented with a detailed image
illustrating the effects of social and cultural exchange and mobility
on artistic creation. As a whole, the collection aims at developing
critical and constructive interdisciplinary revision of these matters.
New and exciting questions are also raised for future discussion. Works
from scholars specializing in history, history of art, palaeography,
codicology, literature, and the history of ideas are bound in a single
volume. The book brings together twenty-five contributions from: L. U.
