Congratulations to Jill Caskey on winning a SSHRC Insight Grant! The grant will support her research project entitled “Pilgrimage, the cult of saints, and patronage in the Kingdom of Sicily, ca. 1300” in the next five years. The study examines the artistic patronage of three cult sites, St Nicholas in Bari, St. Andrew in Amalfi, and St Januarius (the famed Gennaro) in Naples. It probes the ways in which the Angevin kings dealt with old, prestigious cults in southern Italy and supported the development of new ones.
Well done!! Good luck with this exciting project.
