III Annual Les Avellanes Monastery History Days

29/06/2012: Spain

Another year has gone by and it’s time once again to enjoy the Les Avellanas Monastery History Days, an international seminar on the history of the Church and religious practices. The 2012 program will be held on July 2nd and 3rd and its central theme will be Sacred Space in the Monastic World of the Middle Ages.

This year’s event will bring together 15 of the most highly respected European scholars in this field. The conferences and debates will focus on areas such as the concepts and symbolism of monastic spaces, their art and architecture, liturgical and theological features, links to the social and political world, genre and place in history…

In addition to conferences there will be corresponding activities such as a tour around the sacred spaces in the monastery, the serving of a medieval monastic supper and a choral performance in the monastery’s Romanesque cloister.
