Romanesque Conferences

The biennial series on International Romanesque Conferences was launched as the result of a generous donation from one of the Association’s members, John Osborn. The first was held in London on 9-11 April, 2010 under the heading ‘Romanesque and the Past: Retrospection in the Art and Architecture of Romanesque Europe’, and was attended by around 150 scholars, speakers and amateur enthusiasts from a dozen countries. This was followed by a conference on ‘Romanesque and the Mediterranean’ held in Palermo from 16-18 April, 2012, and  ‘Romanesque: Patrons and Processes’ organised jointly with the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya in Barcelona in 2014. The most recent conference was based in Oxford in April 2016 and considered  ‘Romanesque: Saints, Shrines and Pilgrimage’

The next conference will take place in Poitiers on 4-6 April 2018 and will consider the regional and trans-regional in the art and architecture of Romanesque Europe. There will also be an opportunity to stay on for two days of visits on 7-8 April, 2018. The call for papers can be downloaded by clicking on the accompanying link.
