Description

In anticipation of a forthcoming publication by Brill of a festschrift honoring the lifetime achievement of Bill Cook in the field of medieval art, two of his students and colleagues will present papers on several instances of Franciscan representations in the art of the Middle Ages. Dr. Cook's legacy consists not only in ground-breaking and penetrating analyses of medieval art which has employed Franciscan themes and its subject matter; but he has also trained two generations of scholars currently working in the field. The honoree himself will deliver the fourth paper on a hitherto unexplored aspect of Franciscan art.
