Description This talk aimed, in the first instance to propose some historiographical reflections to understand how, in recent years, space and ritual have become two inseparable elements. In a second, it analyzed the relationship between space, images, and liturgy in sacred buildings of the Late Antique world and how ritual (and other) movement becomes one of the key elements in the creation and perception of sacred space. Finally, in the third part, based on some significant examples between through the Mediterranean space, between the late antique and 13th century, he attempted to outline a reflection on the way space is constructed by ritual through the movement of the individual's body.
