Abstract

Marian hymns and sequences occupy a central place in the history of sacred song. Alongside Latin poetry, starting from the early Middle Ages, there were also vernacular translations, which adapted, modified, and transformed the image of Mary from their original models. The conference volume assembles a broad range of interdisciplinary papers that examine these processes of reformulation and appropriation.

Abstract

“No longer imminent, the End is immanent.” “Ends are ends,” Frank Kermode goes on to clarify, “only when they are not negative but frankly transfigure the events in which they were immanent.” From its imminence to its immanence, not “negative,” “no longer,” but transformative, how is “the End” in turn “transfigured”? In what may ending be said then to consist? To “the end times” of apocalypse and eschatology Giorgio Agamben, following Gianni Carchia, opposes messianism and “messianic time”—to the end of time, in a formula, the time of the end. To the writings of those for whom to philosophize is to learn how to die—from Plato to Montaigne and beyond—one may oppose, in like manner, the writings of Spinoza, who “thinks of death least of all things”—“for nature is Messianic by reason of its eternal and total passing away,” as Benjamin writes—and so in whose pages “wisdom,” transfigured, “is a meditation on life.”

Abstract

How do cinematic images generate and transform a community’s affectively grounded sense of values? Using the feeling of guilt as an example, this study shows how modulation of moral sentiments can be described as the calculus of audiovisual staging techniques. This calculus is analyzed as a cultural practice that helps establish the conditions for political community and shapes its historicity.

Abstract

The 18th century witnessed diverse interactions between literature and natural science. Literary texts developed scientific themes, while scientific discourse employed literary techniques. Using representative case studies, this volume examines paradigms and transitions in the history of science (mechanics, geography, botany, chemistry/alchemy) and ways of writing and communicating (the Muses’ Almanac, didactic poetry, encyclopedias, etc.).
