Parution: Marian Devotion in the Late Middle Ages

Andrea-Bianka Znorovszky et Gerhard Jarits (dir.), Marian Devotion in the Late Middle Ages : Image and Performance, Routledge, 2021.

By the late Middle Ages, manifestations of Marian devotion had become multifaceted and covered all aspects of religious, private and personal life. Mary becomes a universal presence that accompanies the faithful on pilgrimage, in dreams, as holy visions, and as pictorial representations in church space and domestic interiors. The first part of the volume traces the development of Marian iconography in sculpture, panel paintings, and objects, such as seals, with particular emphasis on Italy, Slovenia and the Hungarian Kingdom. The second section traces the use of Marian devotion in relation to space, be that a country or territory, a monastery or church or personal space, and explores the use of space in shaping new liturgical practices, new Marian feasts and performances, and the bodily performance of ritual objects.

Les deux derniers chapitres reposent notamment sur une approche médiévaliste :

Chap.9, « Mulier amicta sole »: Transformations of a devotional image between the 15th and the 16th centuries, Ferenc Veress ;

Chap.10, Mobile Shrine and Magical Bodies: Modern Afterlives of Medieval Shrine Madonnas, Juliet Simpson.
