Conference "Cultural routes as a concept" 2013

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Romanesque Road in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, the European Romanesque Center will host a conference focusing on “Cultural routes as a concept" from November 14th – 16th 2013.

The Romanesque Road had been installed in Saxony-Anhalt according to economic and touristic motivation. Meanwhile, it had proved to have a great impact on scientific research as well as cultural heritage preservation.

Historical routes – such as pilgrim trails, trading and military routes – served as mediator of communication even connecting different cultures. These various aspects shall be analyzed in terms of  historic-cultural and philosophical means as well as from the perspective of the history of mentalities.


The European Romanesque Center will host the conference in cooperation with the network "Cultural Heritage“ at Halle-Wittenberg University, Germany.


The state of Saxony-Anhalt, the society Transromanica e.V. as well as the city of Merseburg will support the conference.
