Considering the close connections and filiation between literature and material culture, as well as the manifestation and performance in time and space of the monumental body of Eve, this research examines how Romanesque artistic and performative innovation offers new iconographies that challenge and create a dialogue with textual analogues and liturgy.
Focusing on a dataset of 178 representations of Eve, it also explores through three case studies the tensions between depictions of the body of Eve and their theological, literary, and cultural significance in the context of twelfth-century monumental sculpture. It addresses the powerfully staged images of the female body within a culture of spiritual effervescence, through liturgy and the sacraments.
This innovative project pursues a synthetic approach that combines methods from art history, philology, theology, philosophy, and digital humanities. It makes interdisciplinary connections between material culture, historiography, theology, as well as medieval vernacular literature, sacred plays and the concepts of time and space. Engaging formal analysis, ethics and gesture, semiotics, and feminism, the research outputs situate the project within the digital humanities through a database, statistics analysis, and interactive, collaborative map.
Focusing on the presence of women on the Way of St James in Navarra (Spain), the project involves villages and towns along an alternative medieval route. The project aims to highlight Classical and Medieval artworks representing women, as well as propelling rural economy and agro-eco tourism in the region.
