AbstractA rich number of medieval figures, motives, and artificial appearances on the one hand and material reminiscences of medieval culture and everyday life on the other hand form a long tradition up to the present. The way of re-creating and re-presenting all those phenomena is multifaceted and was changed frequently partly due to the historical, even the ideological context, partly due to individual or scientific alterations in the course of time. This session discusses three examples of medievalism in different cultural areas.
