The Supernatural and Its Visual Representation in the Middle Ages

Monument Building, Popper Room

Supernatural phenomena and causalities played an important role in medieval society. Religious practice was relying upon a set of cult images and the sacral status of these depictions of divine or supernatural persons became the object of heated debates and provoked iconoclastic reactions. The miraculous intervention of saints or other divine agents, the wondrous realities beyond understanding, or the manifestations of magic attributed to diabolic forces, were contained by a variety of discourses, described and discussed in religion, philosophy, chronicles, literature and fiction, etc., and also in a large number of visual representations and material objects. This latter set is the object of our enquiry, where such manifestations in Latin and Eastern Christianity will also be compared to the more reserved attitude of Arabic and Jewish culture to the visual representation of the supernatural.

Texts to Read and Texts to Preach: Medieval Sermons for Private Reading and Public Dissemination

Piliscsaba–Budapest (Hungary)

The aim of the 15th Symposium of the International Medieval Sermon Studies Society is to confront various approaches to the study of reading and preaching (reading as interpretation vs. reading as performance; sermon as text vs. preaching as event; author/preacher-centered vs. reader/listener-centered lines of inquiry etc.) by examining the concepts of “publicness” and privacy in the Middle Ages. The topic is conceived broadly so as to encompass a wide range of disciplines, perspectives and languages, and to address the different manifestations of the public/private dichotomy in both the field of sermon studies and the two interrelated functions of preaching and reading.
