À propos de cet événement

Art historian Anna Russakoff and historian Miri Rubin will discuss Russakoff’s new book, Imagining the Miraculous: Miraculous Images of the Virgin Mary in French Illuminated Manuscripts, ca. 1250–ca. 1450 (Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 2019). In this study, Russakoff addresses the depiction of Marian images in works from Gautier de Coinci’s Miracles de Nostre Dame, to lesser-known anonymous works such as the Vie des Pères and encyclopedic collections (including the French version of Vincent of Beauvais’ Speculum historiale and the Ci nous dit), the Miracles de Nostre Dame par personnages, and the prose Miracles by Jean Miélot. Imagining the Miraculous explores the ways in physical images, such as panel paintings and sculptures, are depicted on the manuscript page, showing also how attentive reading of their reception can help us understand how the miniatures themselves might have led viewers to imagine the miraculous moment when an image comes to life.

Anna Russakoff, Associate Professor and Chair of Art History and Fine Arts at the American University of Paris, has published extensively on Gothic illuminated manuscripts and related art forms. In addition to Imagining the Miraculous she has coedited two volumes: Jean Pucelle: Innovation and Collaboration in Manuscript Painting (2013) and L’Humain et l’Animal dans la France médiévale (XIIe–XVe s.) / Human and Animal in Medieval France (12th–15th c.) (2014).

Miri Rubin, Professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at Queen Mary University of London, has explored a wide range of themes in the religious culture of Europe across the period 1100-1600. She is the author of Mother of God. A History of the Virgin Mary, (2009); Corpus Christi: the Eucharist in Late Medieval Culture (1991), Gentile Tales; the Narrative Assault on Late Medieval Jews (2004), The Hollow Crown: A History of Britain in the Late Middle Ages (2006) and Charity and Community in Medieval Cambridge (1987).
