Parution : Catherine Gaullier-Bougassas, Marylène Possamai-Pérez (eds), “Réécritures et adaptations de l’Ovide moralisé (XIVe-XVIIe siècle)”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

L’Ovide moralisé a joué un rôle significatif pour la connaissance des mythes antiques et la création de nouvelles œuvres littéraires qui se les approprient au moins jusque dans la première moitié du XVIe siècle, avant qu’il ne soit moqué et condamné. Dès son écriture au XIVe siècle, cette traduction en langue française des Métamorphoses d’Ovide accompagnée d’interprétations chrétiennes a rapidement connu le succès et une diffusion large auprès de publics divers qui la lisaient souvent, elle et ses gloses, plutôt...

Appel à contributions : “Trust in the Premodern World”, Oxford, University of Oxford, date limite le 9 septembre 2022

Trust is a fundamental part of human relationships. The choice of who a merchant might give their large investment to, the careful language used by rulers to communicate and discuss tense diplomatic issues, the ways in which law codes and local customs were understood and perceived, can all be seen to rely on trust. The constant construction and variation of trust also means that it frequently breaks down. A breakdown in trust may be seen...

Parution : Michele Savonarola, “A Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara”, Chicago, Chicago University Press, 2022

The first treatise of its kind to be written in a European vernacular. Around 1460, Michele Savonarola produced the extraordinary Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara, a gynecological, obstetrical, and pediatric treatise composed in the vernacular so that it could be read not only by the learned but also by pregnant and nursing mothers and the midwives and wet nurses who presided over childbirth. Savonarola’s work is not merely a trivial set of instructions, but...

Parution : Anne D. Hedeman, Visual Translation: Illuminated Manuscripts and the First French Humanists, Notre Dame Press, 2022

Hedeman explores how visual translation works in a series of unusually densely illuminated manuscripts associated with Laurent and Lebègue circa 1404–45. These manuscripts cover both Latin texts, such as Statius’s Thebiad and Achilleid, Terence’s Comedies, and Sallust’s Conspiracy of Cataline and Jurguthine War, and French translations, including Cicero’s De senectute, Boccaccio’s De casibus virorum illustrium and Decameron, and Bruni’s De bello Punico primo. Illuminations constitute a significant part of these manuscripts’s textual apparatus, which helped...

Parution : John A. Rice, Saint Cecilia in the Renaissance: The Emergence of a Musical Icon, Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 2022

This study uncovers how Saint Cecilia came to be closely associated with music and musicians. Until the fifteenth century, Saint Cecilia was not connected with music. She was perceived as one of many virgin martyrs, with no obvious musical skills or interests. During the next two centuries, however, she inspired many musical works written in her honor and a vast number of paintings that depicted her singing or playing an instrument. In this book, John...

Colloque : La cour se met au vert. Mises en valeur et usages politiques des campagnes entre Moyen Âge et Pré-Modernité, Villeneuve d’Ascq, Université de Lille, 15-17 septembre 2022

« Se mettre au vert ». Issue du langage courant, cette expression renvoie aujourd’hui à l’envie de s’éloigner d’un milieu urbain stressant, bruyant, parfois oppressant, voire rempli de miasmes, pour aller se reposer à la campagne, au plus près d’une nature paisible, profuse et saine, à proximité d’animaux évoluant dans leur milieu « naturel ». Eloigné de toute tentation anachronique, l’usage de cette locution dans le cadre des études curiales, a pour vocation d’inviter les...
