Studying Iberia's early-medieval Christian liturgy
About the project
The Old Hispanic research team at Bristol University focuses on musical, liturgical, theological, notational and historical aspects of the rite celebrated in medieval Iberia until it was suppressed in favour of the Roman liturgy with its Gregorian chant repertoire.
From 2016-17, we had Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement from the AHRC
From 2017-20, we are leading a Leverhulme International Research Network (Processional Chants in Early Medieval Iberia).
From 2019-22, we are leading an AHRC-funded project (Doctrine, devotion, and cultural expression in the cults of medieval Iberian saints).
