Evidence and discourses about animals have been conected with mobility and movement in a variety of contexts. This reaches from livestock mobility to the cerenity of many species or to the move of real animals into the symbol-loaden representation of images and texts. The session will be dedicated to this variety of animal movement in the Middle Ages.
