Colloque international, « Sacred Architecture, Rite and Music between Byzantium and the West (sixth to fifteenth century) », 21-23 janvier 2021, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz / Leibniz Institute of European History.
« From late antiquity to the late Middle Ages, rite and mass piety in the Byzantine Eastern and Latin Western Church were decisively influenced by the interaction of liturgical and musical practice with the sacred space. Byzantium exerted a lasting influence on church buildings in the West, especially in the architecture and the decoration with monumental gold-ground mosaics, exemplified by the Cappella Palatina in Palermo, St Mark’s Basilica in Venice or the cathedrals in Périgueux and Aachen. The relationship of Byzantine to ancient Roman and Gregorian chant as well as the later development of vocal church music in East and West has increasingly become the focus of research in recent years. As several studies have shown, Byzantine sacred buildings not only responded to liturgical, ceremonial and musical requirements, but architectural innovations also affected the rite and church music. Such phenomena have also been observed in various sacred spaces in the Mediterranean regions of the Latin West. »
