Appel à contribution : « Immured Relics – Display, Signs and Memory », Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 28-29 novembre 2024, date limite le 18 mars 2024

This workshop is to explore the relation between relics and architecture. First and foremost, we are interested in cases of relics physically built into the architectural fabric of churches and chapels, such as columns whose capitals have been equipped with relics, triumphal arches or the apse’s semi-dome with relic depositories, “secret chambers” or even foundations and walls fortified by holy material. In order to capture the variety of the phenomenon we decided to exclude the...

In his famous work, La survivance des dieux antiques, published in 1939, Jean Seznec demonstrated that knowledge of the Greek gods did not disappear during the Middle Ages, and thus challenged the opposition often drawn between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: “Pagan antiquity, far from being ‘reborn’ in 15th-century Italy, survived in medieval culture and art; the gods themselves were not resurrected, for they had never disappeared from the memory and imagination of men...

Journées d’étude : « The Image of the Book. Representing the Codex from Antiquity to the Present », Philadelphie, University of Pennsylvania et en ligne, 16-18 novembre 2023

The 16th Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age University of Pennsylvania and Free Library of Philadelphia A great deal of recent research has focused on the objecthood of the pre-modern book and its associated materiality.

Journées d’étude : « The Allure of Rome: Studying Ancient Architecture 1500 – 1550 », Rome, The British School/en ligne, 26-27 octobre 2023

The buildings of antiquity, especially those in Rome, were of fundamental interest to Renaissance architects over the course of the first half of the sixteenth century. During a very few decades, numerous works were surveyed and recorded, often for the first time, and in ever more exacting detail and with ever greater sophistication, among them Rome’s Colosseum and Pantheon and very many other prominent monuments. This great achievement not only provided a touchstone for contemporary...

Parution : Henri de Riedmatten, Fabio Gaffo, Mathilde Jaccard (eds.), « Restoration as Fabrication of Origins: A Material and Political History of Italian Renaissance Art », English/French (Open Access), Berlin/Boston: De Gruyter, 2023

The aim of this publication is to clarify the relationships between material restoration and politics in Italian Renaissance art. The focus of this research is on the question of origin as a foothold for political, patrimonial, and cultural identity. These claims were enacted within a system which, rather than restoring the initial forms and meanings of existing objects, remodeled the past according to new identity requirements: spaces were reorganized, and works of art invested with...
