Parution : Elizabeth Merrill, « Creating Place in Early Modern European Architecture », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

The importance of place—as a unique spatial identity—has been recognized since antiquity. Ancient references to the ‘genius loci’, or spirit of place, evoked not only the location of a distinct atmosphere or environment, but also the protection of this location, and implicitly, its making and construction. This volume examines the concept of place as it relates to architectural production and building knowledge in early modern Europe (1400-1800). The places explored in the book’s ten essays...

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 : Barbara Baert, « The Gaze from Above. Reflections on Cosmic Eyes in Visual Culture », Leuven-Walpole, Peeters Publishers, 2021

When gazing into the vast expanse of ‘the universe’, humankind experiences the universal desire to fathom the mystery of its creation. We utilize our unique ability to express ourselves through artistic means to make this mystery tangible, transmuting the secrets of the cosmos into stunning objects and ingenious symbols. Through a deep engagement with recent iconological methods the author travels up and down a methodological Jacob’s ladder, between the artist’s gazes from the earth to...

Exposition : « In the Library. Print Culture and the Arts in Genoa », Washington, National Gallery of Art, jusqu’au 7 janvier 2022

Known as La Superba, Genoa was one of Italy’s most prosperous maritime powers in the Mediterranean from the late Middle Ages until the eighteenth century. Genoese naval prowess, critical to the outcome of the Crusades, gave rise to a thriving merchant class and led to the establishment of trading colonies throughout the region. By the sixteenth century, Genoa emerged as one of the foremost banking centers in Europe, and its leading families funded the construction of...

Parution : M. Damen, K. Overlaet, « Constructing and Representing Territory in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2021

In recent political and constitutional history, scholars seldom specify how and why they use the concept of territory. In research on state formation processes and nation building, for instance, the term mostly designates an enclosed geographical area ruled by a central government. Inspired by ideas from political geographers, this book explores the layered and constantly changing meanings of territory in late medieval and early modern Europe before cartography and state formation turned boundaries and territories...
