Paolo Squillacioti: "Variazioni testuali in un manoscritto senese del Tesoro volgare (Laur. Pl. XLII 22)" "Textual Variants of the Tesoro volgare in a Sienese Manuscript (Laur. Pl. XLII 22)"
Il ms. Pl. XLII 22 della Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana di Firenze tramanda un volgarizzamento senese del primo libro del Tresor di Brunetto Latini: una versione a sé stante dell'opera, poco utile perciò per la ricostruzione del testo critico, ma per varie ragioni molto interessante.…

Leo Steinberg (1920-2011) left a significant trace in the history. His studies on the Renaissance, the Baroque and contemporary art have shown in a new light artists such as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Borromini, Picasso, De Kooning, Rauschenberg and Johns.

This conference aims to gather a group of international scholars who have worked and who keep on working on any aspect of the presence in Rome of individuals or communities originating from present-day England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and United States.

International perspectives will highlight the global dimension of Rome as a unique cultural and religious crossroad.…

This colloquium will be the second of a two-part series examining the theme of Image as Theology (the first part having been successfully held at the London Global Gateway in Summer 2016). It will bring together international specialists in art history, biblical theology, historical theology, systematic theology, and literature to continue to explore, analyze, and constructively assess the ways in which images influence both biblical interpretation in particular and theological ideas more broadly. The first part of the series was a chance for each participant to bring a nascent project to the table for intense discussion and debate. This second part will involve the presentation of each project in a longer and more polished form, followed by further discussion. We anticipate incorporating a visit to the Vatican Museums (the first colloquium included a fruitful visit to the National Gallery in London) as a key part of our proceedings.…
