Head and Body: Evidence of Power in the Ruler Portrait Between the 14th
and 18th Centuries

Kopf und Körper: Evidenzen der Macht im Herrscherporträt des 14.-18
Jahrhunderts

What meanings do head and body convey in the medieval and early modern
ruler portrait? How do its mimetic schemes and visual projections of
power relate to each other? How are conceptually abstract norms and
values of rulership transposed to categories of looking, how do images
of bodies concretize these norms and values, and what modes of
representation do they cultivate? Research on the history of portraits
has relegated these questions to the margins; we presently lack a
systematic analysis. Nevertheless, head and body forged central
attributes and categories for physical manifestations of rulership in
the Middle Ages and early modern period. The specific conditions of
their visual portrayal is therefore of particular interest. Unlike in
republican or democratic political systems, where the presence and
legitimation of ruling power is supported by an elected government or a
constitution, in principalities and monarchies the prince or king
himself guaranteed the legitimacy of his own rule. He did this above
all else through his physical body, whose visually and haptically
experienced presence first lent the necessary evidence for his
sovereignty.
The conference should comprehensively thematize the different
normative, material, medial, functional, and aesthetic aspects of the
corporeal and material presence of rulership in painted and printed
ruler portraits from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries.

CFP: Authority beyond the Law: Traditional and Charismatic Authority in Antiquity and the Middle Ages, Ioannou Centre, Oxford, 3 December 2016

corona ferreaCall for papers: Authority beyond the Law: Traditional and Charismatic Authority in Antiquity and the Middle Ages, Ioannou Centre, Oxford, 3 December 2016.
Deadline: 16th September 2016.

In Economy and Society, Max Weber theorised three ideal types of authority: charismatic, traditional and legal. While legal authority has been well-explored in modern scholarship and most resembles the structures of authority in our own world, more recent work has indicated the importance of the charismatic and traditional ideal types as lenses for viewing Ancient and Medieval authority. Thus, in his 2016 monograph, Dynasties, Jeroen Duindam stresses the importance of charisma to royal power, exploring the pageantry of power, ritual actions undertaken to safeguard the harvest or control the weather, and the personal delivery of justice, while Kate Cooper, especially in The Fall of the Roman Household, has argued that power in the ancient world was inseparably linked to individual households in a way similar to Weber’s theorising of traditional authority, making the (late) Roman ‘state’ seem significantly smaller than it has tended to before.

By bringing together scholars of many different periods and contexts, we intend to explore the value of Weber’s traditional and charismatic types for understanding changes, continuities and complexities in the construction of authority across Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Submissions might consider the following themes:

  • The use of the irrational and supernatural as a basis of authority
  • Ways that charismatic authority perpetuated itself without the creation of legal authority
  • The interactions between charisma and tradition within individual contexts
  • The use of traditional and charismatic authority legitimise law and legal instruments (rather than vice versa)
  • Status groups’ use of appeals to time-honoured rights and the distant past to legitimate their authority
  • The use of tradition and charisma by heretics and rebels to construct their own authority and delegitimise that of their opponents
  • The applicability of Weber’s typology to non-political authority and to the authority of places and objects
  • The influence of ideas about the ancient and Medieval worlds on sociological thought about authority (and vice versa)

Publication of some or all of the papers may be sought as a themed journal issue.

Submission: We welcome graduate students and early career researchers in Classics, Medieval Studies and other disciplines to submit abstracts of 20 minute papers to authoritybeyondthelaw@gmail.com by the 16th September 2016.
