Parution : Alison M. Brown, The Renaissance, Londres, Routledge, 2020

The Renaissance, now in its third edition, engages with earlier and current debates about the Renaissance, especially concerning its ‘modernity’, its elitism and gender bias and its globalism. This new edition has been revised to include a discussion of Venice, Rome, Naples and Florence and their relationship with surrounding courts and smaller provincial towns. Brown provides a fresh insight into some of the main themes of the Renaissance, with humanism now being explored in relation...

Parution : Ita Mac Carthy, The Grace of the Italian Renaissance, Princeton University Press, 2020

“Grace” emerges as a keyword in the culture and society of sixteenth-century Italy. The Grace of the Italian Renaissance explores how it conveys and connects the most pressing ethical, social and aesthetic concerns of an age concerned with the reactivation of ancient ideas in a changing world. The book reassesses artists such as Francesco del Cossa, Raphael and Michelangelo and explores anew writers like Castiglione, Ariosto, Tullia d’Aragona and Vittoria Colonna. It shows how these artists and...

Parution : Katherine Ludwig Jansen, Peace and Penance in Late Medieval Italy, Princeton University Press, 2020

Medieval Italian communes are known for their violence, feuds, and vendettas, yet beneath this tumult was a society preoccupied with peace. Peace and Penance in Late Medieval Italy is the first book to examine how civic peacemaking in the age of Dante was forged in the crucible of penitential religious practice. Focusing on Florence in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, an era known for violence and civil discord, Katherine Ludwig Jansen brilliantly illuminates how religious and political...

Appel à contribution : « Ut pictura medicina? Visual Arts and Medicine », Salzburg, 4-6 Nov 21, date limite le 15 déc. 2020

Ut pictura medicina? Visual Arts and Medicine Figurations of Transition, an inter-university cooperation between the University of Salzburg and the Mozarteum University Beyond the traditional nexus of art, anatomy, and optics, Early Modern sources often suggest a broader, more complex interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge between art and medicine: Lorenzo Ghiberti, for example, recommended that artists know « medicine » in addition to « anatomy. » One level of the relationship concerned both disciplines’ need to grasp the particularity of...

Parution : Bryan Cussen, Pope Paul III and the Cultural Politics of Reform 1534-1549, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

When Paul III was elected in 1534, hopes arose across Christendom that this pope would at last reform and reunite the Church. During his fifteen-year reign, though, Paul’s engagement with reform was complex and contentious. A work of cultural history, this book explores how cultural narratives of honour and tradition, including how honour played out in politics, significantly constrained Pope Paul and his chosen reformers in framing strategies for change. Indeed, the reformers’ programme would...

Parution : Bert De Munck et Dries Lyna, Concepts of Value in European Material Culture, 1500-1900, Londres, Routledge, 2020

In contemporary society it would seem self-evident that people allow the market to determine the values of products and services. For everything from a loaf of bread to a work of art to a simple haircut, value is expressed in monetary terms and seen as determined primarily by the ‘objective’ interplay between supply and demand. Yet this ‘price-mechanism’ is itself embedded in conventions and frames of reference which differed according to time, place and product...
