More information: online. Images from the other Middle AgesJueves November 26, November 3, 10 and December 17, 2020More than a year ago the fire of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris touched half the world and highlighted the extent to which we are children of the Middle Ages. From an Middle Ages that was neither dark nor dark, but rather a period endowed with enormous creative force. A good example is the authentic explosion of images that took place at the time of the cathedrals and generated visual manifestations of a very diverse nature, from revered and powerful sacred icons to armies of funny fantastic creatures, such as dragons or unicorns, to hundreds of representations of saints and sinners, ladies and gentlemen, angels and demons. With the help of a group of specialists we will try to unravel some of the keys to this fascinating visual universe. From a time without borders, it prone to exchanges and transfers from North to South and from East to West. A world in which images were not only designed to teach – as the topic repeats – but also to arouse emotions and reactions either in the realm of religious feelings or in the space of the most earthly affections. Extreme and intense emotions, such as the faith and anguish of salvation, power and pride or love and love. Half-Middle Ages Heterodox
