Abstract

Angeliki Lymberopoulou explores the cross-cultural interaction between the native Greek Orthodox population and Roman Catholic Venetian colonists on the island of Crete during the Serenissima’s rule by focusing on a religious object, the Fogg triptych, the ‘hybrid’ iconography of which reflects the constructive and multifaceted cross-dialogue developed in the mixed society that produced, embraced and facilitated the trade of such artefacts.
