Abstract

The session discusses so-called marginal imagery. All speakers are affiliated to the research project ‘Reframing the Margin. An Investigation of Non-Dogmatic Imagery in Medieval Art’ in Trondheim, Norway. The first paper argues for a new terminology and a fresh perspective on this group of images. The second paper explores previously neglected corbel sculptures from Chartres, in particular the ‘Spinario’ motif, while the final speaker looks at a group of enigmatic masks on ashlar stones on Norwegian parish churches.
