Sharing the Holy Land – Perceptions of Shared Sacred Space in the Medieval and Early Modern Eastern Mediterranean

A symposium to be held at the Warburg Institute on 12 and 13 June: ‘Sharing the Holy Land – Perceptions of Shared Sacred Space in the Medieval and Early Modern Eastern Mediterranean’ Keynote Speakers: Prof. Osama Hamdan (Al-Quds University, Jerusalem) Prof. Bernard Hamilton (University of Nottingham) Prof. Benjamin Z. Kedar (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) [as a public lecture on 11 June, hosted by Queen Mary University of London] The symposium seeks to address how Western pilgrims and the indigenous Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Levantine populations perceived the sharing of religious shrines. In particular, scholars will look at how this sharing was described in contemporary accounts and influenced the knowledge of the other faiths. Aside from texts, also the archaeology and material culture of these shared places will be discussed. The symposium will focus on the period c.1100-1600, and address the changing political context in the Levant and its influence on the sharing of sacred space.

O estudo dos manuscritos iluminados e dos artefactos na arqueologia da Idade Média: metodologias em comparaçao / L’étude des objet manufacturés en archéologie médiévale et l’étude des manuscrits enluminés: méthodologies comparées

13 de fevereiro – Os métodos científicos utilizados no estudo dos manuscritos iluminados e artefactos na arqueologia medieval é o tema de workshop do IEM. “Estudo dos manuscritos iluminados e dos artefactos na Arqueologia da Idade Média: metodologias em comparação” é o tema de um workshop organizado, dia 13 de fevereiro, pelo Instituto de Estudos Medievais (IEM), unidade de investigação da FCSH/NOVA. O objetivo é o de comparar, por meio da análise de alguns casos específicos, os métodos científicos utilizados no estudo dos manuscritos iluminados (história da arte) e dos artefactos encontrados no âmbito da arqueologia medieval. Em ambas as áreas, os contextos de criação e utilização dos objetos são fundamentais para a sua caracterização e compreensão. A partir de casos específicos vão traçar-se semelhanças e diferenças nos métodos de análise que caracterizam as duas disciplinas históricas. Deste modo, procura-se compreender em que medida é possível adaptar e aplicar metodologias diversas, de modo a obter um conhecimento mais profundo do objeto e do seu contexto. O evento, coorganizado pelo Laboratoire de Médiévistique Occidentale de Paris (LAMOP), tem lugar no dia 13 de fevereiro, das 9h30 às 18h, na sala 0-06 do Edifício ID. O comité científico é constituído por Catarina Tente (IEM-FCSH/NOVA) e por Maria Alessandra Bilotta (IEM-FCSH/NOVA-LAMOP). Consulte o...

Concilium Lateranense IV

Commemorating the Octocentenary of the Fourth Lateran Council of 1215  Italian Flyer  French Flyer  Spanish Flyer  More Info http://lateraniv.com Committee Peter Clarke, (Southampton) Chair; Danica Summerlin (München) Secretary; Brenda Bolton (London); Barbara Bombi (Kent); Maureen Boulton (Notre Dame); Christoph Egger (Wien); Damian Smith (Saint Louis); Lila Yawn (Rome) Rome, 25-29 November 2015 On Monday 30 November 1215 in the Basilica of St John Lateran, Innocent III brought the first assembly of the whole Church since the Council of Chalcedon (451) to a rousing finale by summoning all the delegates to unite in faith and by issuing Ad Liberandam, an encyclical calling for a crusade to liberate the Holy Land. This Council, fourth in the Lateran series but the twelfth ecumenical gathering of the Church in the Western tradition, included the five patriarchs or their representatives, together with more than one thousand bishops, abbots and other dignitaries, both ecclesiastical and secular. At each of the three plenary sessions held on 11, 20 and 30 November respectively, Innocent preached a set-piece sermon whilst, behind the scenes, delegates debated such major issues as who was more worthy to lead the Empire and how to contain the Albigensian heresy. The accounts of eyewitnesses reveal that Innocent’s consecration of Santa Maria in Trastevere and celebrations for the anniversary of the dedication of the Vatican Basilica served not only to emphasize the history, majesty and ritual of the Church but also offered a welcome respite from the intensive discussions in the Lateran Palace. The Fathers of the Council promulgated seventy decrees, covering topics as diverse as heresy, Jewish-Christian relations, pastoral care...

CFP – SIEPM Colloquium Proposal 2015: Tolerance and Concepts of Otherness in Medieval Philosophy

September 9-12 2015, Maynooth University, Ireland Organized by Dr Michael W. Dunne & Dr Susan Gottlöber Keynote Speakers Professor David Luscombe (Sheffield) Professor Roberto Hofmeister Pich (Porto Alegre) Description Tolerance (and of course intolerance) and identity play key roles in our interaction with the world and the other. In fact, due to recent social and political developments, the focus of Philosophy has shifted more and more towards the problem of both inter–religious and inter–cultural dialogue and its limitations. An extremely fruitful source in order to gain a more precise understanding of the questions and problems that arise in the encounter with otherness are the reflections developed by philosophers in the Middle Ages within their respective religious and cultural contexts. This colloquium aims to examine the development of the perception of the other within the different philosophical, religious and cultural traditions by considering not only the theological background but also the philosophical presuppositions of the concepts which then were used to develop various apologetic writings and theological treatises in the late Middle Ages and Early Modern era that dealt with the questions of cultural and religious difference. The organisers invite papers exploring (but not restricted to) the following topics: The Christian perspective on the other which includes both perceptions of otherness as well as dealings with otherness (e.g. tolerance and intolerance). In the Early Middle Ages this includes the dealings with and perception of paganism and the Christian “other”, while later there is the additional focus on the relationship with Islam. This is a huge topic and would thus need to be divided into subsections as it includes topic such...
