‘Petrifying Wealth’ launches an open-access cartographic viewer of medieval constructions, with over 17,000 buildings included.

The European Research Council Project Petrifying Wealth. The Southern European Shift to Masonry as Collective Investment in Identity, c. 1050-1300 announces the open-access publication of its cartographic viewer, which gathers and geolocates over 17,000 buildings with surviving material remains from the 11th to 13th centuries across Iberia, Italy, and southern France (link). The mapping design features a narrowing action from general view to individual building in order to visualize the extraordinary spread of medieval petrification and its monumental legacy, a presence that is still a fundamental element of the European landscape.

[ESP] El proyecto, llamado Petrifying Wealth, se centra en la Europa meridional, donde esta transformación ha sido menos estudiada, por lo que el visor cartográfico incluye registros de la Península Ibérica, Italia y el sur de Francia. En total, más de 17.000 construcciones eclesiásticas y laicas fechadas entre los años 1.050 y 1.300 que permiten visualizar la extraordinaria difusión de la petrificación medieval y su legado de edificios monumentales.
