Medieval art and architecture are often misconceived as being governed by categories and boundaries, be it geographical, social, or artistic. This colloquium will aim to question and challenge these assumptions by highlighting the fluidity and flexibility extant within art and architecture at the time. Boundaries will be interpreted in the wider sense of the word, encompassing geographic location and artistic media as well as questions of in-betweenness and hybridity. The papers will explore the issue of the creation and articulation of boundaries, the question of the validity of scholarly categories, and how art ventured to transgress visual, architectural, and cultural divisions.
