Parution : Heather Graham et Lauren G. Kilroy-Ewbank (dir.), Emotions, Art, and Christianity in the Transatlantic World, 1450–1800, Leyde, Brill, 2021
Emotions, Art, and Christianity in the Transatlantic World, c. 1450–1800 is a collection of studies variously exploring the role of visual and material culture in shaping early modern emotional experiences. The volume’s transatlantic framework moves from The Netherlands, Spain, and Italy to Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and the Philippines, and centers on visual culture as a means to explore how emotions differ in their local and global “contexts” amidst the many shifts occurring c. 1450–1800. These themes are examined through the lens of art informed by religious ideas, especially Catholicism, with each essay probing how religiously inflected art stimulated, molded, and encoded emotions.
