    Making Sense of Latin Classics in the Middle Ages

    12th Celtic Conference in Classics (panel 11)

    The aim of this panel is to explore how medieval authors have dealt with the Classical heritage within their own cultural context. This enquiry could illustrate different degrees of exploitation of classical texts: from systematic excerption to scattered quotations naturalized in different frameworks, from the reshaping of biographies, political and philosophical treatises to the reuse of poetical patterns in order to convey new values. Making sense always implies a multiple perspective. The goal of this panel is to encourage the interaction between different points of view – historical, philological, literary, philosophical, scientific – in order to get a better understanding of the cultural background through which the Classics had to pass before reaching us.

    Composers in the Middle Ages

    Au-delà de quelques figures bien connues, l’identité et la personnalité des créateurs de la musique médiévale se laissent difficilement appréhender. La notion même de « compositeur » reste un concept malaisé à manier, en raison du faible nombre d’attributions dans les sources, de la documentation limitée sur ceux qui composaient la musique, et des modes même de composition, collectifs et ouverts, du Moyen Âge. De fait, notre approche de la musique médiévale s’est longtemps tenue à distance de la question des auteurs, et s’est de facto volontiers orientée vers l’étude des processus de création et pratiques d’interprétation, ou a favorisé des notions telles que le genre, le registre, les répertoires, etc. Le colloque propose de dresser un état des lieux et de revenir sur cette question à la lumière des travaux récents ; il invite à revisiter et élargir la notion de compositeur comme outil alternatif d’analyse et de compréhension des répertoires médiévaux.

    Orient oder Rom?

    Prehistory, history and reception of a historiographical myth (1880Ð1930)

    Today the question “Orient oder Rom?” is no longer a topical issue in medieval art history, although a persuasive answer has never been formulated. One of the reasons for this oblivion deals with the controversial figure of Josef Strzygowski, who in 1901 published about the question his pivotal volume, nowadays discredited for its racial and proto-nazi judgement.However, the question “Orient oder Rom?” concerns not only with Josef Strzygowski: the prodromes of this critical concepts goes back to the nineteenth century, when the Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires fought to control territories. The conference aims to distance from the sole Strzygowski’s perspective and to comprehend and rewrite the story of a pivotal concept for both art historiography and cultural identity.

    Freedom of expression

    Islamic World, Byzantium and Western Europe. Religious Elites and their criticism of power

    The empires of the 8th Century (Western Europe, Byzantium, Islam) are governed in the name of religious principles and with the support of religious elites; however, these elites can criticize the political powers on behalf of their intellectual proficiency and religious responsibilities. This meeting aims the elucidation of political and religious conditions that allow, restrict and of course instrumentalize this freedom of speech. Actually, to let say may be the act of a prince who can allow criticism without being weakened, but rather reinforced by it. An intransigent prophet can use his freedom of expression – but as a courtier can. The examination of concrete means of expression of political criticism (treaties, letters, Mirrors, historiography, exegesis, sermons, hagiography etc.) must lead us to a rigorous comparative point of view: in these three areas, what are the differences in terms of freedom of criticism, its effectiveness and political use?

    Formes dialoguées dans la littérature exemplaire du Moyen Âge

    L'équipe de recherche du Groupe d'anthropologie historique de l'Occident médiéval (EHESS-CNRS) souhaite ouvrir à nouveau le dossier des formes dialoguées dans les exemplaires médiévaux. Le dialogue, tout autant présent dans l'organisation des recueils que dans la structuration des récits, joue un rôle prépondérant dans la rhétorique exemplaire du Moyen Âge. Il s'agira alors de mieux comprendre les fonctions de ces dialogues et voir de quelle manière ils inter-agissent avec les différents milieux sociaux et culturels dont ils sont issus.
