Call For Paper – Eikón Imago Journal 2023 : Imago, ius, religio. Religious Iconographies in Illustrated Legal Manuscripts and Printed Books (9th -20th Centuries) (date limite : 1er fev. 2022)

Imagoiusreligio.

Religious Iconographies in Illustrated Legal Manuscripts and Printed Books (9th -20th Centuries)

Special Guest Editors: Maria Alessandra Bilotta & Gianluca del Monaco

It is not unusual to come across religious iconographies in miniatures as well as borders and based-page scenes in illustrated legal manuscripts and printed books (9th-20th centuries) containing canon, civil or local law texts, like the Livres juratoires or municipal and professional statutes. Some of these iconographies, for instance those in the Decretum Gratiani or the Liber Extra, Gregory IX’s decretals, have been accurately examined. However, a comprehensive survey providing a global and chronological investigation of these depictions is still wanting. Therefore, the journal “Eikon-Imago”, alongside the research team IUS ILLUMINATUM of Institute of Medieval Studies (IEM) of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas at the Universidade NOVA in Lisbon, has decided to devote the 2023 special issue to the study and examination of religious iconographies in legal manuscripts and printed books, so as to create a place for discussion and exchange on the diverse artistic, historical and social aspects of these iconographies.

Call for papers – “Towards a Global History of Soil. Sciences, Practices, Materialities, and Mobilities, 1100–1700”, Julay 22-23, 2021, Deadline : April 30, 2021.

This conference will explore the scientific, practical, and material culture of soil in the premodern world. Developed in conjunction with MPIWG’s research group Agriculture and the Making of Sciences, 1100-1700, it invites research on soil as mobile matter, in the sense of being transported across space, manipulated, and systematized in various bodies of knowledge.

As one of the most basic materials, people at all social levels and from both lay and elite backgrounds engaged with soil in various ways. Because soil was fundamental for agriculture, historians have typically focused on this aspect of its use. However, in the premodern era, soil’s utility extended far beyond this into domains as disparate as architecture and medicine, divination and alchemy. This reassessment of soil, raises many questions:

Call for Papers – Persia and Arabia in Late Antiquity: Bridging the Ancient and Islamic, 17-20 Nov. 2021, deadline : 15 March 2021

L’attribut alt de cette image est vide, son nom de fichier est 60821790_1118109165056969_5799338728828698624_n-2-500x419-1-16-500x419.jpg.

Scholarship has long recognized late antiquity as a transitional period separating the worlds of antiquity from those of the middle ages. For Persia and Arabia, late antiquity is historiographically divided, if not bookmarked, by the emergence of the Islamic faith and conquest of the Sassanian Empire. On the one hand, this historiographical division gives the impression that Islam as a political and religious phenomenon was a definitive rupture between Sassanian and Islamic Persia. On the other hand, pre-Islamic Arabia has received rather scant scholarly attention in comparison with its Byzantine and Sassanian neighbors. This session aims to bridge the historiographical divide by exploring elements of late antique Arabia and Persia that do not map conveniently onto political and religious history. The session is open to topics on the history, art history, and archaeology of late antiquity in Arabia and Persia (200-800 C.E.), especially those with a focus on cultural continuities between the pre-Islamic and ‘early’ Islamic period.
