Damned in hell in the frescoes of Venetian-dominated Crete (13th-17th centuries)

Crete was ruled by the Venetians from 1211 until 1669. A culturally prolific period, it provides one of the most prolonged case studies in cultural interaction between two groups - the native Greek Orthodox population and the Venetian colonists. A lasting monument to this era comprises the 750 surviving churches with fresco decorations. No fewer than 77 of these fresco cycles contain representations of hell and these form the focus for this study. The team hopes to provide material for future research in key iconographic subjects to understand their social and historic context.
