Aus dem Ankündigungstext der Veranstalter: „(…) This conference will try to define a theoretical approach for the transition of sacred spaces in the Iberian Peninsula between the 4th and 10th century, complemented by illustrative case studies in this area. Tradionally scholars analyze these problems considering Spain and Portugal from the point of view of currently politcal frontiers, forgetting the cartography of Roman provincial division inherited from Antiquity and slightly transformed in the Visigoth period; and the new Islamic order after the conquest. In this sense we put forward a comparative framework of analysis in both countries in order to avoid distorsions and to highlight the common past of both countries. (…).“
