Network for Medieval Arts and Rituals

Project description

Twinning approach for Byzantine and Western medieval arts and rituals

Cyprus was an important centre of both the Byzantine and Western medieval worlds, which cooperated closely for many centuries. However, the ritual origins and functions of Byzantine and Western arts remain undetermined among scholars. To fill this knowledge gap, the EU-funded NetMAR project will aim for a new, combined attitude in studies on the interaction of medieval arts with rituals based on twinning potentials. It will facilitate a collaboration between the University of Cyprus and advanced partners in order to introduce new concepts of ritual, ritualisation and performance. The aim is to enhance the field of medieval studies and bring visual arts, literature and performance art together. NetMAR will produce a plethora of scientific activities that will bring new benefits to culture and tourism.
