Medieval Practices Of Spaceby Barbara A. Hanawalt
Pub. Date: 05/26/2000
Publisher: University of Minnesota Press
Based on a conference held in 1997 by the Centre for Medieval Studies, these ten essays explore the ordering, manipulation, function and meaning of space in the medieval period. These studies focus on different approaches to dividing space by cartographers, artists, architects, writers and historians, and in terms of function and practicalities, by gender and social status or class. Includes essays on Paris, Marseille, Italian cities, monasticism and the use of space in performance and staging.
