Reading Group, 12 – 3:00 pm, Friday 14 March at Queen Mary, when we will look at the introduction and fifth chapter in Cynthia Robinson’s Imagining the Passion in a Multiconfessional Castile: the Virgin, Christ, Devotions, and Images in the Fourteenth and Fifteenth centuries (University Park, Pa., 2013). This may be useful for anyone interested in fourteenth and fifteenth-century Spanish art and devotional culture, devotional images more generally, and Muslim-Christian encounters. There will be a number of historians of literature/religion in attendance. Discussion will take place over a sandwich lunch, and is followed by a talk by Lluís Ramon i Ferrer: ‘La Vita Christi de Ludolfo de Sajonia y la función empática del arte: la imago pietatis y la devoción a la Sangre de Cristo.’ Both events will take place in room 1.36 of the Arts One Building, Mile End Campus (5 min walk from Mile End tube).
