Kristina Potuckova is a doctoral candidate in the field of Western medieval art history. In her research, she focuses on the extent and nature of the visual and liturgical environments in women’s religious communities in medieval Germany. In her dissertation, “The Arts of Female Monastic Liturgy, Holy Roman Empire, 1000-1200”, Kristina examines how different elements of these environments work together in ritual. She explores the full range of media active in women’s monastic spaces, from metalwork to textiles.
