Glasmalerei und Architektur des 13. Jahrhunderts gehören zu den zentralen Themen der Kunstgeschichte, es handelt sich um klassische Gegenstände der Forschung. Analysiert werden sie bis heute getrennt voneinander: Das Fenster in Form und Gefüge zählt zur Architektur, seine Verglasung nicht. Die Schnittstelle zwischen Werkstein und Verglasung gilt mehr als trennend denn als verbindend – eine Auffassung, die der mittelalterlichen Baupraxis diametral gegenüberstehen muss. Das II. Internationale Paul-Frankl-Kolloquium, ausgerichtet vom Institut für Kunstgeschichte und Archäologien Europas der Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg gemeinsam mit den Arbeitsstellen für Glasmalereiforschung des Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi Deutschland in Potsdam (Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften) und Freiburg im Breisgau (Mainzer Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur) stellte 2014 in Halle/S. erstmals die Frage nach der gegenseitigen Abhängigkeit von Architektur und Glasmalerei im 13. Jahrhundert in Mitteleuropa und widmete sich den offenen Fragen zum Verhältnis von Bauhütte und Glasmalereiwerkstatt: Nahm man Rücksicht bei der Rahmenform auf den Bildinhalt? Gab es provisorische Verglasungen? Wie ist das Verhältnis der Farbfassungen von Fensterrahmen und Verglasung? Gibt es auf mittelalterlichen Planzeichnungen Hinweise auf die Berücksichtigung von Glasmalereien? Gibt es überhaupt bauliche Rücksichtnahmen auf die Glasmalerei über die Wiedereinsetzung älterer Fenster in einem Neubau hinaus? Der Tagungsband vereint zwölf Aufsätze, in denen Kunsthistoriker, Bauforscher und Restauratoren aus Deutschland, Polen und der Schweiz hierzu ihre aktuellen Forschungsergebnisse vorstellen.

This book searches for the sources and means for a disciplined practical approach to exploring human experience. The spirit of this book is "pragmatic" and relies on a Husserlian phenomenology primarily understood as a "method" of exploring our experience. The authors do not aim at a neo-Kantian "a priori" new theory of experience but instead they describe a concrete activity: how we examine what we live through, how we "become aware" of our own mental life. The range of experiences of which we can become aware is vast: all the normal dimensions of human life (perception, motion, memory, imagination, speech, everyday social interactions), cognitive events that can be precisely defined as tasks in laboratory experiments (e.g., a protocol for visual attention), but also manifestations of mental life more fraught with meaning (dreaming, intense emotions, social tensions, altered states of consciousness). The central assertion in this work is that this immanent ability is habitually ignored or at best practiced unsystematically, that is to say, blindly. Exploring human experience amounts to developing and cultivating this basic ability through specific training. Only a hands-on, non-dogmatic approach can lead to progress, and that is what animates this book. (Series B)
