Study day Orner le culte

Attend the study day 'Orner le culte. Pour une approche relationnelle du textile liturgique entre Moyen Âge et Temps Modernes' at the seminar in Tournai.

This meeting is at the interface between two scientific projects coordinated by KIK-IRPA: the Brain project OrnaSacra and the Fed-twin project CHRISTINA.

Date and time
29 October 2021 09:30 - 18:00
TAMAT, Séminaire épiscopal, Rue des Jésuites 28, 7500 Tournai

After presenting the results and perspectives of these two projects, the speakers will question the anchoring of textiles in ritual during the Middle Ages and early modernity. They will consider the relational aspects that connect these textiles to a system of gestures, looks and words, but also to a system of images, texts, objects and materials that give rhythm to and define the ecclesiastical, or in a broader sense, ritual space.

Also visit the exhibition 'Habiller le culte. Les fastes du textile liturgique de la cathédrale de Tournai', until 28 November 2021 at TAMAT (Musée de la tapisserie et des arts textiles de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles) in Tournai.
