The Chair of History of Medieval Art, Department of Cultural Heritage and Environment, University of Milan, organises an International Conference concerning the Old Testament narrative in medieval wall painting. Four thematic sessions are scheduled, calling for 20 minutes Papers to be presented in Italian/English/French.
– 1st Session: Early Christian Pictorial Tradition and Early Middle Ages (the aim is to bring into focus the relationship between the monumental pictorial tradition set up in the early Christian Rome and its reworking in the early Middle Ages),
– 2nd Session: The Thematic and Narrative Development in the Romanesque Period (the widespread revival of early Christian iconography in the Romanesque period is refected by the Old Testament narrative, which regains room in church decorations, especially dealing with the first part of the Genesis),
– 3rd Session: Old Testament Cycles and Multi-layered Meaning (universal chronicles remind us that an Old Testament cycle was primarily a historical and chronological depiction of the humankind on the path to salvation),
– 4th Session: The Role of Patriarchs, Judges, Prophets and Kings (Since at least the mid 5th century, with the mosaic panels in the nave of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, the Hebrew Scripture has also been illustrated through the stories of its protagonists)
