Traveling to see art is more than a pleasant variation in the academic year. It is an inevitable part of study. After all, even high-quality reproductions and the latest technology cannot mediate direct contact with incredible objects of medieval art. This experience is almost the same for us as it was for their intended audiences, and thus it can take us centuries back. The personal contact with these objects in their original environment can help us to better understand how they were perceived in the personal, social and religious context. With these face-to-face encounters, we aim to recognize medieval art as a material belonging to both the present and the past. We also aim to understand its meaning, as well as the veneration it received, which is ongoing in some places.
