Appel à contribution : « Performing Theatricality and Imaging Religious Ceremonies in Early Modern Western Europe », Gand, Ghent University, 15-17 mars 2024, date limite le 2 octobre 2023

2023 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of the early eighteenth-century book series Cérémonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde, a work on all the world’s religions known to Europe at that time and originally published in seven volumes between 1723 and 1737 in Amsterdam. Edited by the exiled French Huguenot Jean Frederic Bernard, the original seven volumes of the Cérémonies knew a vast distribution across European readers in the Netherlands,...

Parution : Renaud Adam, Rosa De Marco, Malcolm Walsby (dir.), « Books and Prints at the Heart of the Catholic Reformation in the Low Countries (16th–17th centuries) », Leyde, Brill, 2022

Often considered the advent of mass media, the use of books and prints by Protestants has been widely studied and has generated a rich and plentiful bibliography. In contrast, the production and use of the same media by the proponents of the Counter-Reformation have not received the attention they deserve, especially in the context of the Low Countries. The twelve chapters in this volume provide new perspectives on the efficacy of the handpress book industry...

Parution : Emily J. Peters, Laura Ritter, “Tales of the City Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel”, New Haven, Yale University Press, 2022

  An innovative examination of sixteenth-century Netherlandish drawing against the backdrop of the urban economic boom, the Protestant Reformation, and the Eighty Years’ War Featuring works by Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450–1516), Jan Gossaert (c. 1478–1532), Maarten van Heemskerck (1498–1574), Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525–1569), Hendrick Goltzius (1558–1617), and others, this book positions drawing in the Low Countries in the sixteenth century as a dynamic, multifaceted practice. Drawings played roles as varied as the artists...

Parution : Wietse de Boer, “Art in Dispute Catholic Debates at the Time of Trent”, Brill, Leyde, 2021

    Series :  Brill’s Studies on Art, Art History, and Intellectual History, Volume: 59 The Catholic Church answered Reformation-era contestations of the cult of images in a famous decree of the Council of Trent (1563). Art in Disputerevisits this response by focusing on its antecedents rather than its consequences. The mid-sixteenth century saw, besides new scholarship on Byzantine doctrines, heated debates about neo-scholastic interpretations. Disagreement, suppressed at Trent but re-emerging soon afterwards, centered on...

Parution : Marsha Libina, “Sebastiano del Piombo and the Sacred Image”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

On account of the artists’ collaborative practice, Sebastiano del Piombo’s oeuvre is often misconstrued as a coloristic supplement to Michelangelo’s disegno or as a mere extension of the older master’s drawings and ideas. Marsha Libina’s book complicates this narrative by offering a critical reevaluation of the devotional art of Sebastiano del Piombo (1485–1547), an important Venetian artist whose Roman work stands at the nexus of questions regarding art, religious reform and the largely unexplored history of artistic collaboration. Investigating...

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...

Parution : Virginia Cox, Shannon McHugh, « Vittoria Colonna. Poetry, Religion, Art, Impact », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

This edited collection presents fresh and original work on Vittoria Colonna, perhaps the outstanding female figure of the Italian Renaissance, a leading Petrarchist poet, and an important figure in the Italian Reform movement. Until recently best known for her close spiritual friendship with Michelangelo, she is increasingly recognized as a powerful and distinctive poetic voice, a cultural and religious icon, and an important literary model for both men and women. This volume comprises compelling new...

Appel à contribution : « Dominion of the Sacred. Image, Cartography, Knowledge of the City after the Council of Trent », date limite le 1er octobre 2020

Argument Between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Italian political geography was polarized by a number of cities of different sizes and traditions: Rome and Florence, Milan and Naples, Genoa and Venice, Turin and Modena, either ancient republics or new dynastic capitals, satellites of the great European monarchies or small Signorias. The conjunction — less frequently the conflict — between the mandates of the Council of Trent and the interests of the ruling élites of...

Colloque : « Arte e vita religiosa al tempo di Cosimo I. Continuità e cambiamento », Florence, Kunsthistorisches Institut, 14-15 novembre 2019

Organizzato dall’Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore e dal Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz in occasione del V centenario della nascita di Cosimo I dei Medici (1519–1574). All’epoca di Cosimo I de’ Medici l’arte era lo strumento comunicativo più diffuso, sia per la Chiesa che per lo Stato. Il Concilio di Trento ha poi invitato le istituzioni committenti a ripensare i temi tradizionali, e all’interno di questa dinamica avevano particolare importanza sia l’evidente continuità dottrinale con...
