Appel à contribution : Sacred Music, Ceremony and Architecture in Transcultural Perspectives, RSA, Dublin, date limite le 30 juillet 2021

Sacred sound, space and ceremony were intertwined in perceptions of the divine in the early modern world. We seek papers that explore aural and sonic dimensions of religious practices and architectural spaces, particularly proposals that engage with transcultural interactions. Multisensorial dimensions of religious settings (and their critiques) often come into sharper focus in the context of religious and political conflicts. While the sacred permeated societal and political structures of early modern communities, sacred settings were...

Parution : Cristina Acidini et Elena Gurrieri, Florence through Renaissance Eyes, Florence, Leo S. Olschki, 2021

This book is the ideal companion to discover the ancient heart of Florence through the eyes of an exceptional witness: Marco di Bartolomeo Rustici (1392/93-1457), goldsmith and humanist, author of an extraordinary Codex that takes his name.

Parution : Frédérique Lemerle, Yves Pauwels (dir.), « Histoires d’ordres. Le langage européen de l’architecture », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

Tout amateur d’architecture le constate : les grands monuments dans le monde, du Parthénon d’Athènes à la Maison Blanche de Washington en passant par le palais du Louvre à Paris ou l’Amirauté de Saint-Pétersbourg, parlent un langage ornemental commun, celui des cinq « ordres » d’architecture, trois d’origine grecque (dorique, ionique et corinthien) et deux romains (toscan et composite), auxquels, au début du XVIIe siècle, la fameuse « Tower of the Five Orders » de...

Appel à contribution : « Historic Urban Landscape of European Cathedral Cities. Past Presencing. Public Perceptions and Understanding of the Medieval City », en ligne, 21-22 mai 2021, date limite le 1er mai 2021

The term cathedral city indicates an urban settlement that became an Episcopal see in Antiquity or early in the medieval period, and was developed during the 11th to the 15th century. These were formative centuries for European cities, during which a concentration of religious and secular powers and of social and economic forces shaped the form of the urban built environment and redefined its cultural meanings through social practices of space. The aims of this...

Appel à publication : « Art and Death in the Netherlands », Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, vol 72, 2021, date limite le 15 avril

In premodern times, death was a more visible phenomenon than now, due to high mortality rates, but also to the fact that dying and death and the subsequent phases of deposition, bereavement and remembrance – more so than today – were collectively experienced, publicly performed, and commemorated in enduring monuments. Remembrance was held to extend into perpetuity, on personal grounds of love and affection, and for political and religious reasons, the latter normatively being related...

Appel à contribution : « Fortifications savantes, fortifications de savants », Bellecroix, 22-24 octobre 2021, date limite le 1er mai 2021

Quoi de commun entre une fortification classique telle que Neuf-Brisach, un château Renaissance comme Maulnes, une tour maîtresse romane telle que Châtillon-Coligny ? Toutes trois sont l’expression d’un tracé savant, dont la conception exige une conceptualisation dépassant l’utilisation des stéréotypes que sont le quadrangle ou le cercle. Quelles logiques, quels référentiels de doctrine ont présidé à la mise au point de ces tracés extraordinaires de l’Antiquité à l’époque moderne ? Faut-il y voir la volonté de maîtres...

Appel à contribution : « Cities’ Identity Through Architecture and Arts », 12-14 décembre 2021

Parution : William E. Wallace, Michelangelo, God’s Architect: The Story of His Final Years and Greatest Masterpiece, Princeton University Press, 2020

As he entered his seventies, the great Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo despaired that his productive years were past. Anguished by the death of friends and discouraged by the loss of commissions to younger artists, this supreme painter and sculptor began carving his own tomb. It was at this unlikely moment that fate intervened to task Michelangelo with the most ambitious and daunting project of his long creative life. Michelangelo, God’s Architect is the first book to...
