Appel à contributions : Materiality and Conversion. The Role of Material and Visual Cultures in the Christianization of the Latin West

Lieu : Brno (République tchèque)

Dates : 30 novembre-1er décembre 2020

Date limite de réponse à l’appel : 31 mai 2020

This workshop, the first of three interdisciplinary encounters, will assess the material and visual cultures involved into the complex yet extremely efficacious process of the “conversion” of the Roman Empire to Christianity during Late Antiquity: in less than 150 years, most of the population in the Mediterranean area was Christianized. We are interested in new perspective regarding all possible tangible aspects of this “conversion” (images, objects, architecture, liturgical furnishings, clothing, etc.), which should be reconsidered within the frame of the main question of the workshop: “What was the role of material and visual cultures during this rapid religious and social change?”
