Body and Space in the Uta Codex
Keynote paper by Eliza Garrison
Given at the Association For Art History Annual Conference on April 15, 2021
Excerpt: At some point between 1020 and 1025, during the final years of Abbess Uta of Niedermünster’s life, she or someone who admired her deeply, donated to the treasury of the Niedermünster cannonry the object that we now know as the Uta Codex. It is one of the most sumptuous and complex artworks ever created by the monks at the Abbey of Saint Emmeram in Regensburg, which was but a stone’s throw from Niedermünster.
