The research project 'Cities of Readers: Religious Literacies in the Long Fifteenth Century' aims at reconstructing the impact and the diffusion of religious readership and the making of religious knowledge among lay believers and to study their active role in this process. This session will focus in particular on a multimedia approach to the media of religious knowledge and to the creation of 'spaces of religious knowledge', where religious contents could be produced, performed and experienced as a multiform sensorial activity.
