Abstract

This session aims to analyze the complex phenomenon of religious patronage in Late Medieval Castile. Religious groups, like bishops or abbots, had some rules to follow which conditioned their artistic patronage. On the other hand, civil patrons like kings or nobles had to adapt their patronage to ecclesiastical or monastic rules. Finally some artistic works were promoted to encourage certain religious rules. Each paper will be focused in one important group of patrons: kings, bishops and nobles, dealing with different concepts of rules and how they influenced (or not) the artistic patronage in 15th-Century Castile.
