Description

Whether moving forwards by leaps and bounds or coming to a screeching halt, the long path of Italian medieval art includes instances of backtracking, progression and return, revival and innovation. These four sessions seek papers that investigate art and architecture created at moments of rupture with tradition, with accepted norms or forms, with conventions or with anticipated developments. Ruptures include, but are not limited to, periods of iconoclasm, proto-renaissances, Church schisms, heresies and reforms, civil strife, Crusades, and the Black Death. To be sure, rupture is in the eye of the beholder: an egregious instance of it for some may constitute continuity for others. Accordingly, papers may address not only what was, but also what could have been, in an effort to trace the footsteps of winners and losers. These panels focus on people, events, ideas, and forms that in one way or another broke with the prevailing course of the arts in medieval Italy.
