The Medici Archive Project is pleased to announce the dates for the upcoming 2018 Summer seminars in paleography and archival studies: Session I (4-9 June), Session II (25-30 June) and Session III (2-7 July).
The principal aim of this seminar is to provide an introduction to Italian archives (with particular emphasis on Florentine archival collections); to examine in-depth various documentary typologies; to read diverse early modern scripts; and to learn how to plan research in Italian archives and libraries. Especially relevant for graduate students, university faculty, and museum curators working on Renaissance and early modern topics, this seminar is taught by a team of current and former MAP scholars, as well as university professors and other MAP-affiliated researchers. Participating students will be taught at the MAP headquarters at Palazzo Alberti in Via de’ Benci 10.

Light in the Gothic period (twelfth and thirteenth centuries) has been the subject of numerous studies. These have drawn heavily on the writings of abbot Suger and focus particularly on stained glasses or liturgical objects. Aniconic polychromy is very rarely considered. This lecture will therefore explore the relationship between light and architectural polychromy. It will also consider the atmosphere and luminous identities generated by the use of local pigments.
Arnaud Timbert is Professor of Art History of the Middle Ages (University of Picardy Jules-Verne). He is a member of the Scientific Council of the International Stained Glass Center (CVMA). With the support of this institution, he sponsored a collective and interdisciplinary work on Chartres Cathedral (2014). He has also directed several works on materials and construction techniques (abbey church of Vézelay and Noyon cathedral) and restoration (castles of Pierrefonds and Pupetières). Whilst a fellow at the INHA (2015-2017) he also inaugurated a study of the historiography of architecture with a critical edition of the correspondence of Louis Grodecki (2018).
The Birkbeck Medieval Seminar is an annual event. It is free and open to all scholars of the Middle Ages. It is designed to foster conversation and debate on a particular topic within medieval studies by providing the opportunity to hear new research from experts in the field. We are a welcoming and inclusive environment. This venue is fully accessible. Please contact Isabel Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) for futher information or if you need help using the registration site.
