Parution : Jennifer Borland, « Visualizing Household Health. Medieval Women, Art, and Knowledge in the Régime du corps », Pennsylvanie, Penn State University Press, 2022

In 1256, the countess of Provence, Beatrice of Savoy, enlisted her personal physician to create a health handbook to share with her daughters. Written in French and known as the Régime du corps, this health guide would become popular and influential, with nearly seventy surviving copies made over the next two hundred years and translations in at least four other languages. In Visualizing Household Health, art historian Jennifer Borland uses the Régime to show how...

École d’été : « Intensity and the Grades of Nature. Heat, Colour, and Sound in the Ordering of Pre-Modern Cosmos. 1200-1600 », Pise, Domus Comeliana, 11-14 juillet 2023

Held in the stunning premises and terrace of the Domus Comeliana, this summer school will explore how heat, colour, and sound have been used, conceptualised and graded in the pre-modern cosmos shaping both disciplines of knowledge and everyday life. Central to the various cosmologies that developed throughout the period 1200-1600 was the idea that phenomena are subject to a variation in intensity. Intensity determined why objects were of higher or lesser temperature, speed, brightness, porous...

Journée d’études : « Sculptures polymatérielles du Moyen Âge et de la Renaissance en Europe et dans le bassin méditerranéen (v. 1200-1500) », Amiens, 10 novembre 2022

Cette journée d’études se propose d’aborder la question des sculptures réalisées avec l’emploi conjoint de plusieurs matériaux et techniques, offrant l’opportunité de croiser les champs de recherche sur la matérialité. Les premières recherches bibliographiques tendent à montrer que ce sujet a été peu traité. Indubitablement, certaines œuvres proviennent d’ateliers d’artistes confirmés et étudiés. Mais l’aspect purement matériel et formel a été peu pris en compte voire complètement ignoré. Pourtant, les matériaux et la matérialité occupent...

Parution : Cordelia Warr, « Stigmatics and Visual Culture in Late Medieval and Early Modern Italy », Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2022

This book places the discourse surrounding stigmata within the visual culture of the late medieval and early modern periods, with a particular focus on Italy and on female stigmatics. Echoing, and to a certain extent recreating, the wounds and pain inflicted on Christ during his passion, stigmata stimulated controversy. Related to this were issues that were deeply rooted in contemporary visual culture such as how stigmata were described and performed and whether, or how, it...

Appel à contribution : « Marian Devotion and the Senses in the Middle Ages », Leeds, University of Leeds, 3-6 juillet 2023, date limite le 12 septembre 2022

This session seeks to explore the sensory approach of the Marian cult as reflected in Eastern and Western Christianity. It aims to examine the private/collective expressions of Marian devotion in relation to the senses (touch, smell, sight, taste, and hearing) that generate forms of spiritual entanglements and mutual dependencies between human devotional practices, artefacts, and sites. Suggested topics, on any geographic area or time period (between 300-1500) may include, but are not limited to: Pilgrimages...

Colloque : « The Role of the Senses in Medieval Liturgies and Rituals », Padoue, Palazzo Bo – Aula Nievo, 21-23 septembre 2022

By the Late Middle Ages, the liturgy has become the most important and elaborate ceremonial of Christianity in an already highly ritualised society. Indeed, rituals dominated the everyday life of the faithful, from the Divine Office and the Mass to the individual reading of the Hours; and they accompanied the life of people from their birth to their last breath. Besides, liturgy called for collective involvement and aimed at engaging the faithful by stimulating their...

Appel à contributions : “Trust in the Premodern World”, Oxford, University of Oxford, date limite le 9 septembre 2022

Trust is a fundamental part of human relationships. The choice of who a merchant might give their large investment to, the careful language used by rulers to communicate and discuss tense diplomatic issues, the ways in which law codes and local customs were understood and perceived, can all be seen to rely on trust. The constant construction and variation of trust also means that it frequently breaks down. A breakdown in trust may be seen...

Parution : Michele Savonarola, “A Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara”, Chicago, Chicago University Press, 2022

The first treatise of its kind to be written in a European vernacular. Around 1460, Michele Savonarola produced the extraordinary Mother’s Manual for the Women of Ferrara, a gynecological, obstetrical, and pediatric treatise composed in the vernacular so that it could be read not only by the learned but also by pregnant and nursing mothers and the midwives and wet nurses who presided over childbirth. Savonarola’s work is not merely a trivial set of instructions, but...
