From the eighth to the fifteenth century, medieval Spain was the setting for a series of invasions and occupations that resulted in some of the most innovative styles in art and architecture. The studies in this volume, written by scholars on both sides of the Atlantic, reflect some of the new approaches and methodologies in the field of Spanish med­ieval art and architecture. Focusing on style, iconography, function, and reception, in the religious as well as secular milieus, these studies examine influences within the country and outside it in an attempt to contextualize Spain in the larger European framework.
