Parution : C. Strine, M. Mclnroy, A. Torrance, « Image as Theology. The Power of Art in Shaping Christian Thought, Devotion, and Imagination », Turnhout, Brepols, 2022

Our lives are saturated with images. They exert an unparalleled power in contemporary culture. However, the power of images is in fact nothing new. Although texts are often the most important historical sources for academics, the image played an enormous role for those who actually lived in these past societies. Images communicated all manner of concepts and messages to a much wider audience than theological texts. Throughout history, images frequently depicted God, human beings, and...

Parution : Bianca Kühnel, « Jerusalem Icons in the European Space », Louvain, Peeters Publishers, 2022

Based on scripture, exegesis, and an ongoing dialogue with the Jewish and Islamic presence, Jerusalem maintains a central position in Christian spirituality. After several studies that mapped visual references to the holy city in various other representational media, Bianca Kühnel dedicates the present volume to the monumental presence of Jerusalem in European Latin Christianity. The works discussed in this book have a spatial dimension, defined by mimetic architecture and mimetic topography brought to life by...

In addition to art history, these include history, sociology, psychology,...

Appel à contribution : « Gold in Renaissance Western Europe. Interdisciplinary Approaches », Paris, 9-10 juin 2022, date limite le 1er mars 2022

In his influential book on painting and visual culture in fifteenth-century Italy (Painting and Experience in Fifteenth-Century Italy, 1972), Michael Baxandall described the abandonment of gold in painting practices as a sensitive phenomenon both in contracts between painters and patrons, and in the writings of some authoritative art theorists. He linked this attitude to a more general movement on a European scale, consisting of the decline of some practices of display, for example the fashion...

Séminaire : David Ekserdjian, « God and the Painters : The Altarpiece in the Italian Renaissance », Londres, The Courtauld Institute, 10 décembre 2021, 18h30-20h

“My book The Italian Renaissance Altarpiece: Between Icon and Narrative, came out in June 2021. It is never easy to judge one’s own work, but what I think I have tried to do is to provide a species of taxonomy for Italian renaissance altarpieces and at the same time to explore who – between the patrons, the ecclesiastical authorities, and the artists – actually calls the shots.” David Ekserdjian is Professor of History of Art and Film at...

Parution : Caroline Walker Bynum, Dissimilar Similitudes: Devotional Objects in Late Medieval Europe, Princeton University Press, 2020

Between the twelfth and the sixteenth centuries, European Christians used in worship a plethora of objects, not only prayer books, statues, and paintings but also pieces of natural materials, such as stones and earth, considered to carry holiness, dolls representing Jesus and Mary, and even bits of consecrated bread and wine thought to be miraculously preserved flesh and blood. Theologians and ordinary worshippers alike explained, utilized, justified, and warned against some of these objects, which...

Parution : Chiara Franceschini (dir.), « Sacred Images and Normativity: Contested Forms in Early Modern Art », Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

Early modern objects, images and artworks were often nodes of discussion and contestation. If images were sometimes contested by external and often competing agencies (religious and secular authorities, image theoreticians, various Inquisitions, etc.), artists and objects were just as likely to impose their own rules and standards through the continuation and/or contestation of established visual traditions, styles, iconographies, materialities, reproductions, and reframings. While issues such as censorship and iconoclasm have already received much attention from...
