OVI Video Conference Seminar - Theodore J. Cachey Jr.

-

Location: Rome Global Gateway

February 23, 2017

Theodore J. Cachey Jr.:  "La Commedia come 'mappamundi' " ("The Commedia as 'mappamundi'")

Se il tropo di definire la Commedia una sorta di mappamondo è un luogo comune, penso tuttavia che sia giusto dire che gli studi danteschi debbano ancora pienamente esplorare le implicazioni della nuova storia della cartografia per come potrebbe far luce su Dante come autore cartografico, e che ci siano significative scoperte ermeneutiche ancora da fare da questo punto di vista.…

Metaphysical Aspects of Nature: Thomistic and Contemporary Perspectives

Location: Rome Global Gateway

February 25, 2017

The question of how we should understand “nature” is especially pressing in our time, and has applications to a diverse range of philosophical issues ranging from the explanation of human action, on the one hand, to the analysis of fundamental scientific concepts, such as “causation” and “laws”, on the other. To address such issues, Aristotelian-Thomistic ways of thinking are increasingly making a comeback in contemporary philosophical circles. This interest is, however, in its early stages and has been narrowly focused. This conference, organized jointly with the Pontifical University of Santa Croce, will bring together a team of top scholars (including historians of philosophy, metaphysicians, and philosophers of science) to expand the discussion, exploring what a Thomistically-informed philosophy of nature might look like in our own age.…

Marcello Barbato: "Verso un atlante grammaticale della lingua italiana delle origini" ("Towards a Grammatical Atlas of Early Italian")

Come rendere usufruibile la base di dati dell'OVI per ricerche di tipo non solo lessicale ma anche storico-grammaticale? Come ottenere un'informazione rapida, mettiamo, sugli esiti di GN latino o sul paradigma del futuro nei volgari antichi? A queste domande cerca di rispondere il progetto di un Atlante grammaticale della lingua italiana delle origini.…

OVI Video Conference Seminar - Giulio Vaccaro

Location: Rome Global Gateway

April 6, 2017

Giulio Vaccaro: "La cultura volgare nei conventi fiorentini tra Tre e Quattrocento" ("Vernacular Culture in Florentine Convents Between the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries")

Tra il 1767 e il 1866, i manoscritti conservati presso i conventi e i monasteri dell'area fiorentina furono trasferiti presso le due principali biblioteche della città: la Magliabechiana e la Laurenziana. La presenza di dettagliati registri d'incamerazione, la conservazione dei materiali in fondi autonomi e l'abbondante documentazione di inventari antichi consente di ricostruire in modo estremamente dettagliato quale fosse la circolazione di manoscritti in volgare nei conventi e nei monasteri.…

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.…

North Atlantic Catholic Communities in Rome, 1622-1939

Location: Rome Global Gateway

June 5 - 8, 2017

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. This international conference will help identify the transnational networks comprised of so many individuals who, despite the fact that they came from different countries in the North Atlantic region, had their destination, or their intellectual point of reference, in the Eternal City and looked to Rome as their spiritual metropole. International perspectives will highlight the global dimension of Rome as a unique cultural and religious crossroad.…

Image as Theology – Colloquium

Location: Rome Global Gateway

July 4 - 6, 2017

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.…
