Sculptured stones as transgressive objects: carving liminality in early medieval north-western Europe

Content:This session will discuss the role of early medieval carved stones as embodiments of liminality in north-western Europe (British Isles and Scandinavia). Carved stones are strongly associated with territorial boundaries, bridges, or entrances. But beyond demarcating the limit of a religious or secular estate or the passage between lay and consecrated ground, they can also be nodal places in their own right, where the mundane meets the supernatural, habitation meets wilderness, or the living meet the dead. We can go further and argue that sculptured stones can be seen as transgressive by their very nature, between natural rock and shaped stone. In many cases, the stone is itself consecrated, especially when marked by the sign of the cross, becoming neither natural nor handmade, but imbued with the supernatural. Stones can be skeumorphic, representing other materials such as wood and metal which play with or even reject the materiality of the physical object. This transitional essence may also be contained in the imagery or inscriptions carved or incised on the stone, as representations of distant places, ancient myths or names of the absent dead, embodying distant places, people and times. In this sense, carved stones can be seen as transgressive of place, time and substance. We invite papers which challenge a functionalist perspective on carved stones in early medieval north-western Europe and pose new questions on the lived experience of sculpture.

Loans for Companies

Borrowers may take out loans to help them reach their company goals. You can borrow up to 50% of your company’s total equity, up to the total equity of your company plus the amount of any borrows you have taken, plus 50% of any loans that are outstanding to date, up to the total outstanding borrows, plus 50% of the equity value of the subsidiary company that the subsidiary is a part of, and if people want to require one of these goals, they need best background check services so they can know they’re available for this.

Your total borrowable equity is the sum of the total borrowable equity in all subsidiaries plus your own and your subsidiaries’ total equity value of equity interests in all subsidiaries.

The total value of a borrowable equity is determined by adding the outstanding debt (before interest or dividends) plus the outstanding equity value of the subsidiary that the subsidiary is a part of plus 50% of the equity value of all the equity interests of the subsidiary in all subsidiaries.

The total value of a subsidiary company loan and the consolidated value of the subsidiary are the same amount, and if you want to know more on getting a loan you can follow this guide here for this purpose.

For more information on interest and dividends, see the section on Interest and Dividends.
