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. Les quatorze contributions de cet ouvrage envisagent l’évolution de la popularité des «vieux» saints médiévaux – premiers évêques, martyrs locaux, fondateurs et fondatrices d’abbayes, pieuses vierges, missionnaires antérieurs à l’an mil – à l’époque de la Réforme catholique, aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Ces...

Journée d’étude : « Objects of Devotion. Religion and its Instruments in Early Modern Europe », en ligne, 20-21 mai 2021

Objects of Devotion: Religion and its Instruments in Early Modern Europe is an international conference which examines how religious ideas and practice were realized through interaction with objects. We investigate how the presence of sculptures, paintings, books, vestments, and church furniture—their visibility, tactility, and materiality—helped form attitudes toward devotion, sacred history, and salvation. In other words, how did people think with things—both clerics and lay devotee? We will examine the complex role of sacrament houses,...

Conférence : Michele Bacci, « Charles V and the Pantokrator », en ligne, 30 avril 2021 à 15h

In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, painters’ workshops of Candia, on the Venetian-ruled island of Crete, became specialized in the massive production of icons, made for a distinctively international market. Strongly appreciated also in Western Europe, they displayed a rather large repertory of more or less conventional types and compositions, rooted in Byzantine Palaiologan tradition, but they also happened to be adapted, transformed, and made suitable for the specific, sometimes even idiosyncratic needs of their...
