Call for abstracts – Architectures of the Soul 4 

Religious Heritage: understanding the past, shaping the future

Bologna, 31 Marzo 2023

For centuries, religious built heritage has played an essential role in shaping social, economic, environmental and cultural values. Caves, hermit settlements, chapels, monasteries, convents, churches and cathedrals have dialogued with the surrounding environment, be it a mountainous or solitary place, a fertile valley, a peripheral or urban centre. Today the memory of these places tends to be erased. The secularization of many convents, churches or monasteries, as well as the abandonment or scarce use of others, have led to the loss of a series of material values. These specific buildings and landscapes must, therefore, be rethought in the light of contemporary challenges. 

 

The Fourth International Conference "Architectures of the Soul. Religious Heritage: understanding the past, shaping the future" intends to promote the study and scientific discussion on architecture and landscape related to religious and spiritual practices, based on the experience of isolation and solitude . 

 

The conference will be hosted, between 19 and 21 October 2023, by the Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória (municipality of Batalha, Portugal), recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, exactly 40 years ago._cc781905-5cde- 3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

 

This scientific event is structured around two main themes, to understand the historical and current values of these places and how they can shape the future:   

1. History of religious experience; 2. Future of religious heritage.  

  

 

Call for Abstracts: 

Abstracts may not exceed 300 words, must be written in English and sent by March 31, 2023, together with a short biography with a 200-word limit.  

Each abstract must include: context, objective, methodology, results, conclusions and five keywords. Otherwise, the abstract will not be considered. 

 

After the conference, a call for papers will be opened. The texts, selected through a double-blind peer-review process, will be published in an international book with ISBN and/or in special issues of indexed scientific journals.
