Abstract

The following article addresses the critical issues of the ‘regional’ and ‘transregional’ in Romanesque art and architecture in relation to monastic networks and does so through analysis of the church of Santa Fede in Cavagnolo (Piedmont) – a church likely to have been built in the first half of the 12th century as a priory of Sainte-Foy in Conques. By interrogating the institutional connection between the mother abbey (Conques) and its foundations across Europe, I it explores the extent to which monastic networks, through the establishment of an institutional geography and the mobility of artefacts, masons, and models, provide an alternative paradigm to approach the question of transregional style in Romanesque art and architecture.
