|Abstract||This is the second of two complementary sessions dealing with the representations and reflections of conformity and dissent.
Keeping in mind the aims stated in the previous abstract, in this session on dissent the discussion on the importance of the political background will be central. Ranging from Rome, to Ravenna, to Wearmouth-Jarrow, it will be questioned how the political milieu of a city or region could strongly influence the choices in architecture, decoration, and even rituals. This seeks to explore the degrees of dissent on iconography and literature, whilst considering the constant struggle to integrate different and contrasting elements within one Christianity.
