with Gerardo Boto Varela, Cesar García de Castro, Esther Lozano Lopez, Marta Serrano Coll

TEMPLA is a permanent workshop of Medieval Studies composed of specialists from universities, museums, and archives from different parts of Spain, Europe and, in particular, Catalonia. The members of the team share common interests as well as complementary areas of expertise. The impact of its research and its interactions with experts from other disciplines are reflected in its specific research projects and academic activities, which are disseminated in annually organized scientific meetings and resulting publications.

TEMPLA members actively seek to collaborate with different research groups and scientific institutions. They aim to facilitate exchanges among researchers and to stimulate scientific debates relating to visual programs and spatial organization from the Middle Ages. Particular attention is devoted to the liturgical influences and the use of architecture and to reflection on the social and academic status of research on medieval art and culture.
