Abstract

The purpose of the four papers is to present both the memory of the Middle Ages present in post-medieval works of art as well as the remembrance of earlier art in medieval times. The references to the Middle Ages are shown from a point of view of the different approaches of the contemporary art history research. The papers focus on the issues of memory, adapting medieval artistic solutions in modern works of art, and reinterpretations of the medieval art. The artistic ways of remembering the Middle Ages are discernible in works of art and can be elaborated within the framework of art history research.
