Journées d’étude : « Picturing Sainthood: Images and the Making of Saints in Early Modern Global Catholicism », Rome, Bibliotheca Hertziana, 19-21 juin 2024

In the early modern period, throughout the process of negotiation that gave shape to sainthood – whether officially recognized or aspirational – images were of paramount importance. Encompassing a wide range of media, from inexpensive medals and woodcuts to costly altarpieces, images were as crucial at the grassroots level of popular devotion as in the context of elite patronage. The conference Picturing Sainthood: Images and the Making of Saints in Early Modern Global Catholicism investigates...

Appel à contribution : « Visual and Material Cultures of Female Sanctity », Bamberg, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, 13-14 juillet 2023, date limite le 28 février 2023

Two- and three-dimensional images of female saints are highly complex religious objects. They depict the saints in a wide variety of material and performative settings in which the women are richly gifted and preciously adorned. During their object history, these images have been subjected to repeated changes by multiple actors. Their formation as artefacts is inextricably linked to the developments of the cult of the saints as a social phenomenon (Peter Brown). In sophisticated ways,...

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...

Parution : Jenni Kuuliala, Saints, Infirmity, and Community in the Late Middle Ages, Amsterdam, Amsterdam University Press, 2020

Bodily suffering and patient, Christlike attitudes towards that suffering were among the key characteristics of sainthood throughout the medieval period. Drawing on new work in medieval dis/ability studies, this book analyses the meanings given to putative saints’ bodily infirmities in late medieval canonization hearings. How was an individual saint’s bodily ailment investigated in the inquests, and how did the witnesses (re)construct the saintly candidates’ ailments? What meanings were given to infirmity when providing proofs for...
