The Bell Wheel: The Legacy of a Liturgical Object from Medieval Mallorca

Miquel Pou Amengual


This work presents a collection of musical instruments called “bell wheels” preserved from the medieval period in Mallorca. The study briefly analyses the pieces that have been found, providing information about their location and state of conservation. Moreover, it offers a first section that contextualises them through contemporary written sources (customaries and ledgers) and graphic works in which the various typologies of these pieces were depicted.
