Network for Medieval Arts & Rituals (NetMAR)

We are an international, cross-disciplinary network dedicated to the study of medieval arts and rituals.

NetMAR brings together scholars, researchers, and students from different countries, backgrounds, institutions, and disciplines, all of whom are committed to academic excellence and to widening participation.

The network is made up of three major partners:

  1. University of Cyprus (UCY) and its newly-created Centre for Medieval Arts & Rituals (CeMAR)
  2. Centre for Medieval Literature (CML) at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU)
  3. the Centre for Medieval Studies (ZeMas) at the University of Bamberg (UNI BA)


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement No 951875.

Following the Footsteps of Jesus: Bamberg’s Late Medieval Stations of the Cross

By Florian Abe, Tucher Kulturstiftung / Freie Universität Berlin

This blog post delves into Bamberg's late medieval Stations of the Cross, exploring their unique arrangement mirroring Jerusalem’s Via Dolorosa. These types of ensembles offered an immersive pilgrimage experience by intertwining art, architecture, and rituals that allowed visitors to physically follow Christ's steps, forging a profound connection between faith and experience that can still be grasped in the city today.
