Module III: Monasteries, priories and cathedrals

Module III will address cathedrals, monastic buildings and priories. Here, religious and secular themes are often tightly interwoven. Cathedrals, monasteries and  priory churches, sumptuously decorated halls and prestigious spaces such as cloisters, refectories, libraries and the so called „Imperial Halls” in monasteries represent this important and sophisticated group of monuments.
