Appel à contribution : « God is in the Details. The Art of Detail in the Middle Ages », The Courtauld Institute of Art, date limite le 13 février 2022

27th Annual Medieval Postgraduate Colloquium The Courtauld Institute of Art For Aby Warburg, God was in the details; for others they were the devil. From manuscript miniatures to carved altarpieces or richly decorated muqarnas , detail was highly valued in the Middle Ages. In different circumstances the deployment of detail displays, disguises  and depends upon the materiality of objects, embedded in the woven structure of textiles,  the techniques of Islamic metal inlay, and the varied...

Parution : S. Ryan, S.L. Smith, L.K. Skinnebach, « Material Cultures of Devotion in the Age of Reformations », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Northern Europe were characterized by enormous religious change. During this period new religious ideas and ideals gradually took shape and materialized in all aspect of religious life, both on a private level as well as in public and liturgical space. The fundamental question of how God could be experienced as present in the world, became – again – the center of lively debate. Lutheran, Calvinist, Roman Catholic and Anglican reformations – to mention...

Parution : P. Howard, N. Terpstra, R. Saccenti (dir.), Renaissance Religions : Modes and Meanings in History, Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

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...

Parution : Timothy Verdon, « Fra Angelico. Painter, Friar, Mystic », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

A lavishly illustrated exploration of the art and theology of Fra Angelico. Fra Angelico offers a unique encounter with the celebrated painter, seen through the eyes of Monsignor Timothy Verdon.  As an art historian and (like Angelico) a Catholic priest, Monsignor Verdon approaches the work of the only artist ever beatified through the theological lens it deserves, bringing together Fra Angelico’s art and his faith. Praised by his contemporaries, by later art historians, and by generations...

Parution : Philippe Desmette, François De Vriendt, « Les saints anciens au temps de la Réforme catholique (Europe occidentale, XVIe-XVIIIe siècles). Déclin ou renouveau ? », Bruxelles, Société des Bollandistes, 2021

Si tous les saints ont acquis valeur de témoins de la foi aux yeux des fidèles catholiques, leurs actes, leurs attitudes et leurs messages sont des plus variables selon les époques.

Ces...
