Fenestella is a scholarly and peer-reviewed open access journal. It is published by the University of Milan, Department of Cultural Heritage and Environment. Fenestella publishes scholarly papers on medieval art and architecture, between Late Antiquity and c. 1400, covering the Latin West, the Byzantine East and medieval Islam. The journal aims to consider medieval artefacts from within, as if seen through a fenestella confessionis, in order to throw light on iconography, function and liturgical practice and space.
Fenestella supports basic research, favouring an inter- and trans-disciplinary approach arising from the horizon and methodology of art history. Papers on wide-ranging themes, critical reviews and studies of micro-topics are all welcome, as long as they contribute to debate at an international level.
Fenestella accepts submissions in Italian, English, French, German and Spanish, with abstracts in English.
Submissions that satisfy a preliminary review by the editorial staff are then peer-reviewed by anonymous reviewers.
After final acceptance and copyediting each article is given a DOI number, to be immediately published and indexed. Articles published during a calendar year are collected in an annual issue.
