Abstract

The session deals with the variety of models, spiritual as well as material ones, that can be traced in medieval source evidence: in texts, images, architecture, and so on. It concentrates on the analysis of reasons, contexts, and chronological developments as well as on the comparison of the adopted phenomena, situations, or objects and their models
