Abstract

The papers of this session consider the different types of borders existing in time and space of cultural landscape, in the world of images and in the thinking. Piotr Pajor examines perception of the symbolic aspects of the city fortifications in the 13th and 14th centuries. Barbara Ciciora analyzes the small picture by François Fleury-Richard, Artist’s atelier and its intriguing inscription ‘Laissez dire et faites bien’. Dariusz Tabor emphasizes some aspects of psalter of Trzebnica (Wrocław, University Library, IF 440), which is a breakthrough point between the era of community book and time of personal book.
