Abstract

This session focuses on the written and iconographical sources related to food, produced and used, in Sardinian and Spanish Middle Age contexts (11th-15th centuries). The first paper is about salt and grape production and fish supply in the city of Cagliari; the second one analyses the evidence of grape production in Spain between 11th and 15th centuries, through the iconography of Beato di Liébana’s Apocalypse. The third paper goes back to Sardinia and examines the objects used in meals painted on the cycle of the Last Supper in the church of Nostra Signora de Sos Regnos Altos in Bosa.
