Jewish Books and their Christian Collectors

CONFERENCE: Jewish Books and their Christian Collectors in Europe, the New World and Czarist Russia, Blue Boar Lecture Theatre, Christ Church, Oxford, 22 – 23 May 2017.

A two day international EAJS conference that will deal with Christian collectors of Hebraica in order to understand how these collections, whether private or public, were acquired and assembled, and in what way they could be said to represent the cultural universe of their owners.

While there have been a proliferation of studies on the manifold ways that Latin and vernacular books were read and collected, there have been as yet few attempts to interpret the widespread phenomenon of Hebrew books read, collected and deposited (and sometimes catalogued) in the libraries of Christian scholars and merchants, as well as in universities and theological seminaries.

For over the centuries Christians and Jews were constantly in search of Jewish texts of all types, in both manuscript and print. This quest was carried out over a remarkable range of locations, from libraries in the heartlands of the various Christian confessions, to the studies of Jewish scholars and readers in both Europe and the Near East.

Women Artists and Patrons @ the Medici Court

CONFERENCE - A Legacy of Ladies: Women Artists and Patrons at the Late Medici Court, 2017 Jane Fortune Conference, The Medici Archive, Palazzo Alberti, via de’ Benci 10, Firenze, 21 April 2017. Organizers: Sheila Barker, Amy Fredrickson and Julie James.

The 2017 Jane Fortune Conference examines the deep imprint that women left on the artistic ferment of Baroque Florence, beginning under the regency of Archduchess Maria Maddalena of Austria and continuing through the last years of Electress Palatine. To do so, it will explore the cultural agency of both female patrons at the Medici court and the women artists who flourished there, from the mid seventeenth century to the early eighteenth century.

Only in recent years has attention been given to the complex web of female social patterns at the late Medici court. Vittoria della Rovere has been acknowledged as a key patron, yet her successors and their own patronage patterns have yet to be fully explored. The physical spaces used by noble women and their female households throughout Europe are essential to this study. Here, both heraldry and the displays of art collections helped to demarcate these spaces.

Thanks to their talents, some low-born women were given a degree of access to female courts. Exacting standards of moral conduct were expected of them, mitigating against their social station. Juxtaposing women painters with the irreproachable embroiders and lacemakers and the potentially licentious singers and actresses opens a discussion about the social and behavioral aspects of female creativity in early modern Florence.

Pietro Toesca a Roma e la sua eredità

Toesca

CONFERENCE: Pietro Toesca a Roma e la sua eredità, Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza, Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia, 7 – 8 aprile 2017.

Pietro Toesca (1877-1962) è stato uno dei maggiori storici dell’arte italiani del Novecento, ma la sua figura di studioso e insegnante non è stata indagata quanto quella di altri personaggi chiave della disciplina quali Adolfo Venturi, Roberto Longhi o Giulio Carlo Argan. Se gli anni del suo magistero a Torino sono stati già oggetto di ricerche specifiche, manca a tutt’oggi un esame complessivo degli oltre venti anni nei quali Toesca visse e lavorò a Roma, insegnando alla Sapienza.

Il convegno intende richiamare l’attenzione su questo lungo e proficuo periodo della sua attività, sia nella veste di docente in una Scuola dove si sono formati alcuni protagonisti della storia dell’arte italiana del pieno Novecento, sia in quella di intellettuale e studioso nel rapporto intessuto con le principali istituzioni dell’epoca (Enciclopedia Italiana, Gabinetto Fotografico Nazionale, Istituto Centrale del Restauro, Istituto Nazionale di Archeologia e Storia dell’Arte).

Collection and Organisation of Literary Texts

WROKSHOP: Collection and Organisation of Literary Texts in Early Medieval Manuscripts, Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures (CSMC), Warburgstraße 26, Hamburg, 11 May 2017.

Manuscripts containing early medieval Formulae are witnesses of an interaction between documents of different kind, dealing with juridical matters as well as with topics intimately linked with scholarly material. This is especially the case in East Francia where Formulae are found in the context of a much more varied textual landscape than the 19th-century Edition by Zeumer suggests (this edition is obsolete and a new one is in preparation). Most of the eastern manuscripts point to an educational use; collections of Formulae are often in community with glossaries, grammar, theology and even poetry.

Based on this finding from our research project we want to explore in this workshop the organizing principles of multi-text-manuscripts with a focus on East Francia, especially in regard to the fundamental question of random accumulation vs. planned collection. The workshop will offer the opportunity to compare diverse corpora and to look for similarities and diversity. The contributions focus on the work of the collectors as well as on the finished products, the MTMs themselves. The range of topics is expanded to include MTMs of different textual genres, such as rhethorics and poetry.

Les Psaumes de David

Salmi

CONFERENCE: Les Psaumes de David, colloque GRAPHE, Université d’Artois, Maison de la Recherche, 9 rue du temple, 62030 Arras, 23 – 24 mars 2017. Organisé par Jean-Marc Vercruysse.

Fidèle à une alternance entre Ancien et Nouveau Testament, le colloque annuel Graphè porte en 2017 sur les Psaumes de David. Le Livre des Psaumes réunit cent cinquante poèmes, de longueur variée, aux tonalités nombreuses : déclarations de fidélité à Dieu ou à Jérusalem, imprécations contre l’ennemi, supplications ou cris de révolte, actions de grâce et chants de pèlerinage, lamentations ou prières de confiance dans une perspective messianique et eschatologique. Certains psaumes sont particulièrement célèbres comme le Miserere (Ps 50), le De Profundis (Ps 130), ou le verset : « Mon Dieu, mon Dieu, pourquoi m’as-tu abandonné ? » (Ps 22,1) qui témoigne déjà de la reprise, sous forme de citation, dans le Nouveau Testament.

Collections and Collecting Art

Collecting

CONFERENCE: Collections and Collecting Ancient, Byzantine and Medieval Art, Christie’s Education London, 153 Great Titchfied Street, W1W London, 23 March 2017.

Collecting Ancient and Medieval art attracts both academic and public curiosity because the objects (and structures) in question are not only often extremely rare, but also have fascinating histories. The ability to possess a piece of our past has allowed collectors throughout the centuries to create a continuity between that past and their present.

This conference will explore the history of Ancient, Byzantine and Medieval collections, how they were originally formed, how objects survive and in what contexts, and how certain collections themselves live on.

It will also address how the collections of the past may be reflected in the way that we approach collecting today, the theoretical and the historical framework of collections, how they are currently presented, as well as some of the controversies in the field. Equally, the problems and issues underlying the collecting of Ancient and Medieval art, and the knowledge required to authenticate them will be discussed.

Printing Text and Images in Italy

CONFERENCE – More than Meets the Page: Printing Text and Images in Italy, 1570s-1700s, University of Warwick, 4 March 2017.

For Italy, the ‘long seventeenth century’ was a period of considerable financial challenges. This was especially evident on the book market. Nevertheless, thanks to new techniques and formats which mutually related text and images within the same publication, innovative genres were born that were marketed towards both ends of the audience spectrum, from the learned to the illiterate.

More than meets the page: Printing Text and Images in Italy, 1570s-1700s aims to investigate the ways in which the consolidation of the book and print trade influenced the development of such new book genres from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth century. The new commercial items, moreover, contributed to the spread of cultural phenomena, for instance the Grand Tour through its souvenir prints that were sometimes incorporated in atlases.

This one-day interdisciplinary conference seeks to examine these matters by focusing on the products, audiences and professionals involved. By doing so, it sets out to lay the foundations for a shared history of printed products and markets in the early modern period. The conference promotes a multi- disciplinary perspective, bridging the gaps between art history, history of the book and other disciplines such as intellectual history and communication studies.
