International and U.S. scholars will gather to examine the near-intact monastic treasury of San Isidoro de León in northern Spain as a springing point for larger questions about sumptuary collections and their patrons across Europe and the Mediterranean in the central Middle Ages. Topics of inquiry include Islamic law and sumptuary production, Christian manuscripts and metalwork, patronage and royal studies, identity and gender studies, and cultural and political history. The diversity of questions and perspectives addressed by the speakers will shed light on the nature of León as a paradigmatic treasury collection, as well as on the broad efficacy of multidisciplinary study for the Middle Ages.
