dc.descriptionThis first introductory article presents the brand new, interdisciplinary, and diamond open access journal Eventum, along with the specific theme of Issue 1: “The Arts and Rituals of Pilgrimage”. It describes the rationale and scope of the journal in association with the three key terms of its subtitle, in reverse order: ‘rituals’, ‘arts’, and ‘medieval’. As for the topic of the present issue, which explores the arts and rituals of the medieval and postmedieval practice of pilgrimage, some important points are noted in relation to the issue’s five subsequent articles. Moreover, as an essential element of medieval social, political, and religious life, pilgrimage was a relational and complex practice. Its power and efficacy did not only emanate from its associated rituals, but also from its arts. In fact, visual, literary, and performing arts were the sine qua non of medieval pilgrimage, just as they were integral elements of all important medieval rituals. As the articles of this first issue of Eventum reveal, the transformative experience that pilgrims sought through pilgrimage was achieved through the interaction of arts and rituals.en
dc.description.abstractEventum aims to reposition the arts and rituals of various medieval traditions and to provide an international and congenial forum for the presentation and discussion of research on: all medieval arts in and as rituals; and the initiators, participants, spaces, forms, structures, and artistic dimensions of all medieval rituals. Furthermore, Eventum provides a platform for the examination of the relationship between medieval, later, and contemporary arts and rituals, bringing to the fore the rich cultural heritage of the Middle Ages for a better understanding of both the past and the present. For Eventum’s purposes, the term "medieval" is used in its broader sense, covering Byzantine, Western European, Coptic, Syriac, Hebrew, Arabic, Armenian, Georgian, and Slavic cultures from the 4th to the 15th centuries.
