Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Visual and material remains are tantalizing clues to the former glories of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. This is particularly the case for surviving religious material culture. Scholars from across many different disciplines have analysed these objects, buildings, and paraphernalia in an attempt to piece together the late medieval and early modern religious experience and the role religion played in daily life.
2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses on the Wittenberg Church. From that date, religion in Europe had profound changes. One such change was how people viewed, interacted and created visual and material objects related to religious devotion. This conference aims to bring together medievalists and early modernists approaching religion on either side of the Reformation through a visual and/or material examination. By bringing together scholars from different disciplines, curators and heritage sector representatives it is hoped that a more holistic discussion of visual and material objects will come to light.
