“Living and dying in the cloister”: XXIII IRCLAMA International Symposium in Zadar, Croatia

Zadar (HR) – “Living and dying in the cloister. Monastic life from the 5th to the 11th century”: the monastic life investigated through monk’s vision is the perspective of the XXIII IRCLAMA International Symposium that will take place in Zadar, Croatia, from May 28th to June 4th, 2016. The meeting intends to penetrate deeply, through the study of space and time of the monastic asceticism, into one of the fundamental structures of development of medieval society between East and West. History, art and architecture are the primary tools by which, through the words spoken and written by the monks, are examined the forms of the monastic complexes, from late antiquity archetypes of Christian Europe in the Middle Ages.

The  colloquium is organized and partly financed by the Project Croatian medieval heritage in European context: mobility of artists and transfer of forms, functions and ideas CROMART, financed by the Croatian Science Foundation, and with a contribution of the Croatian Ministry of Science, education and sports. It has been supported by the Università catolica del Sacro Cuore (Milano), Centro Studi Longobardi.
