Abstract

This four-paper session explores various aspects of religious life and its impact on the medieval Northern Adriatic. In accordance with the specific strand of borders and boundaries, the proposed papers will each analyse a particular topic, such as: Were there any boundaries between different artistic influences in the artisanship of late medieval wooden crucifixes and to what extent have they defined the woodcarving production in the North Adriatic? What were the boundaries between various influences on the production of medieval sculptures of Pietà in the context of expressing compassion and piety? How did the representations of saints’ power trough relics in late medieval Croatian literature shape cultural imagination of small communities? What message did the wooden effigies tried to convey during the funeral procession?
