Popis The central topic of the international and interdisciplinary conference is the study of motion (the transfer of persons as well as objects such as reliquaries, books, altars, ivory diptychs) as a cultural factor. Attention will be paid to the objects produced and/or used in relation to the cult of relics and/or deads, as well as to the models of ideal or holy cities perceived as a realization of the kingdom of heaven. The conference aims to raise and assess a variety of questions related to: 1) how does the object change its function in connection with its relocation; 2) how do the important objects and ideas change the identity of the place that accepts them; 3) the impact that the ideas and sacred objects may have on the social and the spiritual topology of a city.
