Étiqueté : Art et dévotion

Giotto, tête d'un moine visionnaire

Parution : « Mystique, langage, image : montrer l’invisible », Reichert Verlag, Wiesbaden, 2022

The experience of transcendence, especially when it concerns the direct encounter with God, exceeds every human possibility of expression. Only pictorial expression is able to make visible, at least approximately, what is invisible to the human eye and the human imagination. This volume deals with a whole range of such forms of expression, with contributions from the history of art and literature as well as music and history.   SOMMAIRE René Wetzel (Genève) – Vorwort...

Parution : Cordelia Warr, « Stigmatics and Visual Culture in Late Medieval and Early Modern Italy », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book places the discourse surrounding stigmata within the visual culture of the late medieval and early modern periods, with a particular focus on Italy and on female stigmatics. Echoing, and to a certain extent recreating, the wounds and pain inflicted on Christ during his passion, stigmata stimulated controversy. Related to this were issues that were deeply rooted in contemporary visual culture such as how stigmata were described and performed and whether, or how, it...

Appel à contribution : « The World of Printed Prayers », Galway, University of Galway, 26-27 janvier 2023, date limite le 17 octobre 2022

Since its invention, print has been harnessed to promote piety, to proselytize, and to spread both orthodox and unorthodox beliefs. This conference will explore the multifaceted use of printed devotional objects from the earliest days of replicating text and image using printing techniques through the end of the nineteenth century. This conference is particularly concerned with the production, dissemination, and engagement with cheap printed prayers from all faiths, denominations, and religious traditions around the world....

Appel à contribution : « Marian Devotion and the Senses in the Middle Ages », Leeds, University of Leeds, 3-6 juillet 2023, date limite le 12 septembre 2022

This session seeks to explore the sensory approach of the Marian cult as reflected in Eastern and Western Christianity. It aims to examine the private/collective expressions of Marian devotion in relation to the senses (touch, smell, sight, taste, and hearing) that generate forms of spiritual entanglements and mutual dependencies between human devotional practices, artefacts, and sites. Suggested topics, on any geographic area or time period (between 300-1500) may include, but are not limited to: Pilgrimages...

Appel à contribution : « Ritual. Practice, Performance, Perception » Ceræ, date limite le 30 avril 2022

Rituals pervade human life. From small or mundane rituals like brushing our teeth or making one’s daily coffee, to grand ceremonies that mark important life stages, rituals are everywhere. This has prompted reflection on what rituals are, on what can be considered as ritual. Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites essays that analyse rituals of all kinds: public and private, communal and solitary, secular and religious, rapidly changing and long-lasting. It also...

Parution : Miyako Sugiyama, « Images and Indulgences in Early Netherlandish Painting », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

This book demonstrates the relationships between images and indulgences in fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century Netherlandish art. In the Roman Catholic Church, indulgences served as a way to reduce temporal punishment in purgatory for one’s sins. Indulgences could be obtained by reciting prayers and performing devotional practices. Penitents could earn this type of devotional indulgence with the aid of paintings and other artifacts that possessed theological, historical, and aesthetic values as well as performative and promissory...

Conférence : Mads Vedel Heilskov, « Living Matter in Medieval Denmark », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 8 décembre 2021, 17h-18h30

Objects that were imbued with sacred potency played an integral part in the medieval religious experience. Even though not all religious authorities agreed on the legitimacy of the phenomenon and no ecclesiastical orthodoxy was ever reached on the role of images and materiality in the medieval West, religious objects, mainly figures and images, frequently animated and acquired life. This could, for instance, manifest itself in movement, speech or bleeding, sometimes by way of miraculous, sometimes by way of mechanical...

Journée d’études : « Pré-former/Performer : Sources et catégories pour l’étude de la performance et du rituel (Moyen Âge et première Modernité) », UCLouvain, 6-7 octobre 2021

Le but de cette journée d’études est de s’interroger sur les différentes sources qui nous permettent d’étudier la performance et le rituel, en questionnant les différentes catégories d’analyse : performance dévotionnelle, théâtrale, liturgique, politique, légale, etc. Quels sont les concepts que les historien.nes, les musicologues, les historien.nes de l’art et de du théâtre utilisent et comment les confronter ? Nous entendons donc rassembler des supports variés (manuscrits, images peintes, tapisseries, objets, etc.) qui appellent à...
