This session, Cultural integration and alienation on medieval choir stalls proposes to demonstrate the roles – both integrated and alienated – of selected minorities – Jews, Saracens, Indians and individuals living outside their native regions. The time frame will be limited to the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and show some probable effects for example of the expulsion of Jews in Spain on the roles of Spanish Jews on choir stalls. The depicion of the Saracens will focus not only on the Reconquest of Granada carved on thhe back panels of the Toledo choir stalls but also the Saracens on the stalls of other European countries.
