Dr Cordelia Warr is Senior Lecturer in Art History at the University of Manchester. She works on Italian art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and is particularly interested in clothing, its representation, and its problematic relationship with the spiritual realm. She has published widely on the representation of religious dress. Her book Dressing for Heaven: Physical and Spiritual Dress in Italian Art 1215-1545 (2010) investigates clothes as liminal objects, drawing on areas such as material culture, Renaissance models of consumption and devotion, and gender studies.

Monica L. Wright is the Willis Granger and Tom Debaillon Professor of French and Medieval Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She is the author of the book Weaving Narrative: Clothing in Twelfth-Century French Romance (2009) which explores the relationship between sartorial signifiers and narrative structure in medieval French literature, and she contributed the chapter on “Literary Representations” to A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion in the Medieval Age (2017), part of a six-volume series on fashion through the ages.
