Parution : Tobias Frese, “Bilder der Christophanie : Ambiguität, Liminalität und Konversion”, Brill, Leyde, 2022

    Frühmittelalterliche Bilder der Christophanie irritieren den Betrachter oftmals durch widersprüchliche Aussagen. Das Buch analysiert prominente Fallbeispiele in neuen Perspektiven. Doppeldeutigkeiten in der mittelalterlichen Kunst wurden von der kunsthistorischen Forschung lange Zeit unterschätzt oder gänzlich ignoriert. Dies resultierte aus dem traditionellen Anliegen der ikonographischen Interpretationspraxis, christliche Bildinhalte möglichst eindeutig zu bestimmen. Motivische Widersprüchlichkeiten wurden zumeist als Ausnahmen disqualifiziert, auf pragmatische Gründe zurückgeführt oder als künstlerische Fehler abgetan. Im Buch wird anhand mehrerer Fallbeispiele dargelegt,...

Exposition : “Le Saint Jérôme de Léonard de Vinci. Un chef-d’œuvre inachevé”, Château du Clos Lucé, Amboise, du 10 juin au 20 septembre 2022

Le Clos Lucé présente pour la première fois, en partenariat avec les musées du Vatican, un tableau de Léonard de Vinci. Entre dessin et peinture, le Saint Jérôme suscite de multiples interrogations quant aux raisons pour lesquelles il ne fut jamais terminé, à sa datation, à ses commanditaires, à sa provenance. Pour certains spécialistes, Léonard n’aurait jamais cessé d’y revenir et s’y serait attaché. L’œuvre l’aurait accompagné tout au long de son existence. L’exposition intervient...

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...

The Santa Casa, or Holy House of the Virgin Mary, is a relic in constant motion.

Over the ensuing centuries, the House prompted the movement of people to the...

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...
