Textiles from the Museum of San Isidoro (León): New Evidence for Re-evaluating Their Chronology and Provenance
figureposted on 07.05.2019, 09:13 by Ana Cabrera Lafuente
This paper presents the first in-depth analysis of the textiles held by the Museo de la Real Colegiata de San Isidoro de León, providing a careful investigation of textile
features and raw materials, in addition to carbon-14 dating and archival research. These new data have allowed us to redate the fabrics, placing them within their tenth-through
early thirteenth-century Mediterranean and European contexts. The result is a more complex image than was previously assumed, and it offers a significant starting
point for further research into the roles played by textiles in medieval Iberia.
