AbstractOver the last 15 years, numerous discoveries have revealed a corpus of thousands of new images on the ceilings of medieval houses between the 13th and early 16th centuries. Particularly present in the Mediterranean region, the abundant iconography of these paintings transcends current political boundaries and demonstrates dense artistic circulation. From Majorca to Italy, via Aragon, Languedoc, and Provence, the domestic imagination of the territories builds its own specificities while being impacted by external visual cultures, Islamic, Iberian, or Italian. These images cross many borders: religious, cultural, or even the borders of Creation through the omnipresence of hybrids.
