To commemorate the third year of ‘IUS ILLUMINATUM’, the research team are organising an international Conference on the topic: “The Illuminated Legal Manuscript from the Middle Ages to the Digital Age: Forms, Iconographies, Materials, Uses and Cataloguing” on 22–25 September 2021.
Invited experts in the field ranging from academics to digitisation specialists (and all overlaps imaginable) will talk about the digitsation of medieval manuscripts. The panel members have sent in videos.
Papers and discussion will focus on the ways in which ancient modes and traditions of representation were transformed and retooled as the rise of Christianity necessitated new ways of conceptualising and visualising the place of man in the universe.
The conference will sum up the status quaestionis of research into Syriac art and architecture and spell out major desiderata for the field going forward.
The conference will run in a hybrid form.
