Matching pictures and words to understand women’s monastic life
There are numerous surviving material artefacts, pieces of art and literature showing the monastic life of women in the Iberian monasteries (1350-1550). These were created by nuns in their conventual contexts. When studied separately as different fields of culture, they are difficult to interpret. This may give rise to misunderstandings. To overcome this challenge, the EU-funded LITVIS project aims to apply a pioneering joint perspective in addressing visual art, texts and rituals in their common environment of monastic life. The work will contribute to unveiling, matching and understanding how and why certain objects and texts were developed as well as their role and their reception in monastic life.
