2018 FIDEM Congress: Past and Future: Medieval Studies Today – 6th European Congress of Medieval Studies

Past and Future Medieval Studies Today 6th European Congress of Medieval Studies Past and Future Medieval Studies Today 6.e Congrès Européen d’Études Médiévales 02-05.09.2018 Basel (Switzerland), Department of Arts, Media and Philosophy of the University of Basel FIDEM Congress 2018 The 6th European Congress of Medieval Studies of the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Études Médiévales (FIDEM) will be organized by the Department of Arts, Media, and Philosophy of the University of Basel, Switzerland. SUBJECT There was a time, not so long ago, when Medieval Studies constituted a major pillar for the understanding of the history of human civilization. The Middle Ages bridge the gap between ancient culture and Modernity; it is the period during which the Greek and Roman heritage was transformed into European and Christian values and found expression in new and different ways in music, art, architecture, literature, philosophy, and theology – fields, which testify to the cultural evolution of humanity. For this reason, Medieval Studies had a strong and uncontested position in the curricula of many institutions of higher education, especially in the Western world. Today, things are different. While the medieval contribution to the project of humanity remains beyond doubt, the challenges facing those interested in history have definitively changed. In a globalizing world, the emergence of the universities, gothic architecture, polyphony, and urban culture, can no longer be studied in isolation. Their significance must be assessed against the background of developments elsewhere in the world, for instance, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Today, what does the medieval past mean for a global and culturally diverse future? Medieval Studies have always excelled by their vigorous...

2013 FIDEM Congress: Secrets and Discovery in the Middle Ages – 5th European Congress of Medieval Studies

Secrets and Discovery in the Middle Ages 5th European Congress of Medieval Studies Secret et découverte au Moyen Âge V.e Congrès Européen d’Études Médiévales Segredo e descoberta na Idade Média Vº Congresso Europeu de Estudos Medievais 25-29.06.2013 Porto (Portugal), Faculdade de Letras FIDEM Congress 2013 The 5th European Congress of Medieval Studies of the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Études Médiévales (FIDEM) is organized by the Gabinete de Filosofia Medieval, Universidade do Porto, Portugal. FOCUS Fascination with secrets traverses the Middle Ages. A secret is shared by few and coveted by many, requiring a lot of those who have to keep it, or those who want to disclose it. A secret is power, hence the eagerness to discover it. But as curiosity can lead to the abyss and punishment, discovering secrets also requires prudence and caution. The relationship between secret and discovery expresses itself in the Middle Ages, as in all times, through many other dynamic dualities: mystery and revelation, arcane and evidence, unknown and sought, ignorance and knowledge, esoteric and exoteric, private message and edict, hidden and manifest, conspiracy and complaint. The secret is in the nature, which does everything to hide itself, while he reveals itself in many ways, but only to those who know how to interpret it. So in the Middle Ages there are sciences for all secrets: of God, of elements and things, of the stars, of physiognomy, of women, of happiness, of the delights of paradise, of relics, of holiness, of the inner life, of sin, of power, of distant peoples and lost places, and of countless other things. The secret is itself a...
