Western Michigan University : The proposed session concentrates on Marian iconography of the Late Middle Ages, with particular emphasis on fourteenth to sixteenth century. It focuses on the movement of iconographies in/from/towards France by highlighting connections and influences pertaining to Italian, Spanish, and/or English geographical areas. Furthermore, it situates Marian visual depictions in the context of the development of Marian devotion (rise in her cult and liturgical feasts) and specific theological debates (Immaculate Conception).
Leeds : The proposed session concentrates on representations of the Virgin Mary and Saint Anne in the Middle Ages by bringing into discussion new approaches on their iconographies. In certain instances, Mary’s life incorporates episodes of Saint Anne’s allowing, thus, multiple readings and multiple layers of meaning in the very same (visual) representation.
