AbstractThe Salvaging Crete Project ( documents eight 14th-century Byzantine chapels attributed to Ioannis Pagomenos. This interdisciplinary panel considers the ways these sites challenge our thinking about borders in time and space. Taking up the dichotomies of local-global, centre-periphery, and medieval-modern, these papers explore how the chapels enhance our understanding of the complex transition from the medieval to modern period in the Mediterranean; how they provide an unparalleled vantage into rural life at the core and margins; and how they demonstrate the alliances crosscutting global, national, and local categories to preserve heritage at risk.
