In concavis petrarum habitaverunt: El fenómeno rupestre en el Mediterráneo Medieval: De la investigación a la puesta en valorJorge López Quiroga and Artemio Manuel Martínez Tejera 2014 © BAR Publishing
This fourth volume (Proceedings 4) presents the results of an international conference held at the Museo de los Orígenes (Casa de San Isidro) in December 2008. The work is divided into three parts: Four studies on general aspects of the 'rock world' in the Iberian Peninsula, the chronology of the caves artificially created, the 'troglodyte' in the Greco-Roman tradition, and the chronology of rock-cut tombs. The second part looks at eleven studies of various regions and 'rock complexes' in the Iberian Peninsula ('San Vítor', in San Lorenzo da Barxacova, Parada del Sil, Ourense; 'El Bierzo'; the upper valley of the Ebro; 'San Martín de Albelda', in 'La Rioja'; the middle valley of the Cidacos river; the high valley of the Arlanza river; 'San Frutos del Duratón', Segovia; the suburbium and territory of Ercavica in Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages; the territory of Sierra Magina; and finally, the Almagruz caves, in Purullena, Granada. The third part examines parallels in other Mediterranean regions, such as the 'rock city' of Matera (Italy), the valley of the Euphrates (northern Syria); the churches built on the rock of Lalibela (Ethiopia), and the 'rock world' in the provinces of 'Arabia' and Palestina Tertia in Jordan.
