Conférence : Dionysos Bacchus Liber: from Mythology to Philosophy | Warburg Institute, 22 mars
From the 14th century onwards the European production, diffusion and consumption of wine increased dramatically. This phenomenon, in parallel with the resurgence of interest in Antiquity characteristic of the Renaissance, brought about a renewed production of images of the divinities of wine. This study day will address the various transformations of these divinities from Ancient to early modern times and their impact on early modern art and philosophy. It accompanies the public release of a digital library of texts and a collection of over 2500 electronic images on the subject of Dionysus, Bacchus and other divinities associated with wine held at the Warburg Institute Library and Photographic Collection.
Speakers will include: Guido Giglioni (Warburg Institute), Philippe Morel (Paris I, Institut Universitaire de France), François Quiviger and Claudia Wedepohl (Warburg Institute).
Organised by François Quiviger
