"Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door". Sacred Spaces in Transition: Late Antiquity–Early Middle Ages
We have chosen a particular chronological framework, between the 4th and 10th centuries, breaking both the traditional framework of analysis of Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages and the ideological and cultural frontier of the Islamic conquest, in order to establish the differences and similarities between the transformation of pagan sites by Christianity and the impact of Islamic rulers in the construction of new religious spaces. Taking a strongly interdisciplinary approach, this congress tackles these questions from the point of view of archaeology, architectural and art history, liturgy, literary sources, law, philosophy and history in order to consider the fundamental interaction between the sacred and the profane.
