IRCLAMA colloquium

Since 1994 IRCLAMA organizes annual international conferences for scholars and experts of various profiles from all over the world: archaeologists, art historians, historians, architects, museologists, conservators, antique law experts, liturgists, philosophers, historians of literature, anthropologists, sociologists, etc. The topics of the annual conferences allow a wide range of possible approaches from different areas of study. The papers from the conferences are peer-reviewed and published in the annual Hortus Artium Medievalium scientific journal.

            A great number of students always participate at the symposiums giving them a unique opportunity to establish first contacts with researchers from all over the world and in this way get insight into approaches and methods of scholarly research.
