AbstractPresentations in the proposed session ask how does materiality and gender intersect in medieval sources, such as sculptures, paintings, texts, and spaces. Scholars with backgrounds from art history, archeology, history, and theology are brought together and seek to enhance their interpretations by stepping outside of their comfort zones. The objective is to present fresh aspects to the study of material culture, gender, and religion in the Middle Ages.
