Description

Johannes Reuchlin’s 1517 De arte cabbalistica, represents both a watershed in syncretism and theological symbolism—linking the Divine Name to Pythagorean number and musical harmony— and a culmination of a medieval Dionysian and Cusan traditions. Thus, on the 500th anniversary of Reuchlin’s work, this panel explores Dionysian and Cusan theology's legacy and analogues in late medieval and Renaissance poetry, visual art, music, and mathematics.
