Abstract

The session considers the role that liturgical processions had in authorising and claiming certain spaces for religious use and how this authority could be used for both sacred and secular purposes. Two of the participants will examine specific liturgical rites (of Zagreb and Salisbury Cathedrals) and the third participant focuses on the role of the organ in authorising secular triumphs by relating them to liturgical practices.
