This section of the website is dedicated to the Conex-Plus Project
LIT! Reception of catacomb art in European culture and architecture between the 19th and 20th century
a Marie Curie Cofund Project of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid led by Dr. Chiara Cecalupo.

Here we will share the main outputs of the project
for a wider dissemination of the results

The project LIT!

In the 19th century the fever of Christian art exploded in Europe and expressed in many special ways. One of these is the birth of many architectural buildings and constructions inspired by catacomb art, i.e. fac-simile catacombs, museums structured as catacombs, internal decoration of private rooms.
There are traces of this
phenomenon in many European countries, that had undoubted repercussions of culture
and art of Europe between the 19th and the 20th century.
The project LIT! analyses in depth these cases, their influxes and effect
on European culture.
