Parution : Matthew Collins (dir.), « Reading Dante with Images. A Visual Lectura Dantis », Turnhout, Brepols, 2021

A new approach to the traditional Lectura Dantis: Dante scholars study selected cantos while also taking into consideration the illustrations of those cantos, thus engaging with illustrations as interpretation, and further considering the Commedia from the perspective of its ekphrastic nature. This volume contains an unprecedented meeting of two major traditions, each of which are forms of careful engagement with Dante’s Commedia: the Lectura Dantis, and the illustrations of this work. The Lectura Dantis, initiated...

Parution : Matthew D. Shoaf, Monumental Sounds Art and Listening before Dante, Leyde, Brill, 2021

In Monumental Sounds, Matthew G. Shoaf examines interactions between sight and hearing in spectacular church decoration in Italy between 1260-1320. In this “age of vision,” authorities’ concerns about whether and how worshipers listened to sacred speech spurred Giotto and other artists to reconfigure sacred stories to activate listening and ultimately bypass phenomenal experience for attitudes of inner receptivity. New naturalistic styles served that work, prompting viewers to give voice to depicted speech and guiding them toward...
