Parution : Sarah Schell, “Image and the Office of the Dead in Late Medieval Europe”, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2023

Image and the Office of the Dead in Late Medieval Europe explores the Office of the Dead as a site of interaction between text, image, and experience in the culture of commemoration that thrived in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The Office of the Dead was a familiar liturgical ritual, and its perceived importance and utility are evident in its regular inclusion in devotional compilations, which crossed the boundaries between lay and religious readers. The Office...

Parution : Bart Ramakers, Edward H. Wouk (dir.), « Art and Death in The Netherlands 1400-1800 », Leyde, Brill, 2022

In premodern times, death was a more visible phenomenon than now owing to the ways in which dying and the subsequent phases of burial, bereavement, and remembrance were collectively experienced and publicly performed, and commemorated in objects and monuments. This volume of the Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art offers a diverse collection of essays on works of art, permanent or ephemeral, related to dying and cultural experiences of death, interment, and memorialisation in the...

Parution : Jessica Barker, « Stone Fidelity. Marriage and Emotion in Medieval Tomb Sculpture », Suffolk, Boydell & Brewer, 2022

Medieval tombs often depict husband and wife lying side-by-side, and hand in hand, immortalised in elegantly carved stone: what Philip Larkin’s poem An Arundel Tomb later described as their “stone fidelity”. This first full account of the “double tomb” places its rich tradition into dialogue with powerful discourses of gender, marriage, politics and emotion during the Middle Ages. As well as offering new interpretations of some of the most famous medieval tombs, such as those...

Conférence : Stephen G. Perkinson, « Memento mori. Imagery and the Limits of the Self in Late Medieval Europe », Londres, The Courtauld Institute et en ligne, 26 mai 2022, 17h30

Objects bearing memento mori themes were abundant in Europe in the decades immediately around the year 1500. The material properties of these objects – the matter from which they were formed, the apparent care or negligence with which they were fashioned, and the ways their physical condition betrays signs of heavy use or careful conservation – can point us toward a better understanding of the diversity of interests that inspired their creation and use. These motivations range...

Appel à publication : « Art and Death in the Netherlands », Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art, vol 72, 2021, date limite le 15 avril

In premodern times, death was a more visible phenomenon than now, due to high mortality rates, but also to the fact that dying and death and the subsequent phases of deposition, bereavement and remembrance – more so than today – were collectively experienced, publicly performed, and commemorated in enduring monuments. Remembrance was held to extend into perpetuity, on personal grounds of love and affection, and for political and religious reasons, the latter normatively being related...

Parution : Stephen Perkinson et Noa Turel (dir.), Picturing Death 1200–1600, Leyde, Brill, 2020

Picturing Death: 1200–1600 explores the visual culture of mortality over the course of four centuries that witnessed a remarkable flourishing of imagery focused on the themes of death, dying, and the afterlife. In doing so, this volume sheds light on issues that unite two periods—the Middle Ages and the Renaissance—that are often understood as diametrically opposed. The studies collected here cover a broad visual terrain, from tomb sculpture to painted altarpieces, from manuscripts to printed books,...
