Gems Of Gods And Mortals: The Changing Symbolism Of Pearls Throughout The Roman Empire, Emily Hallman Apr 2020

Gems Of Gods And Mortals: The Changing Symbolism Of Pearls Throughout The Roman Empire, Emily Hallman

Armstrong Undergraduate Journal of History

Born in the wombs of shells and polished by mother nature herself, pearls were regarded as gifts from the gods. For millennia, the creation of pearls was credited to the tears of heavenly creatures or the formation of sun-touched dewdrops. Countless civilizations, both Western and Non-Western, have their own myths and legends surrounding the pearl, a mark of their mysterious allure. The artform of jewelry, favored by the Roman aristocracy, took advantage of naturally perfected pearls to create stunning pieces with staggering prices. The pearl’s meaning evolved throughout the Roman Empire and into Early Christian Rome, setting up a ...

Staging Dante Today: A Three-Day Residency Of Teatro Delle Albe At The University Of Pennsylvania, Giulio Genovese Dec 2019

Staging Dante Today: A Three-Day Residency Of Teatro Delle Albe At The University Of Pennsylvania, Giulio Genovese

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Giulio Genovese reports on last spring’s visit from Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari, founders of the Teatro delle Albe in 1983. They shared their experience with Dante Alighieri and his relationship with the city of Ravenna. The Teatro delle Albe staged the “Inferno” (2017) and the “Purgatorio” (2019), and they will celebrate the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death in 2021 with a new performance.

Dante Translating, Robin Kirkpatrick Dec 2019

Dante Translating, Robin Kirkpatrick

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay is intended as a discussion document. Its argument is that translation does not involve a search for conclusive authority but is rather a performative act, engaging the reader of a translation as well as its author in close critical engagement with the text. This may be said even in considering the translation of Dante’s Commedia—a work which all too often is thought to aim at final, definitive utterance.


“A Simple Sucking Of The Teeth:” Beckett, Dante And The “Risus Purus”, Scott Annett Dec 2019

“A Simple Sucking Of The Teeth:” Beckett, Dante And The “Risus Purus”, Scott Annett

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Samuel Beckett’s “Dante postcards” record the first three smiles to be found in the Purgatorio. In doing so, Becket draws attention to a gesture that has recently received significant critical attention within Dante studies. These postcards suggest Beckett’s alertness to the complexity of face to face encounters within the Commedia, while also providing an opportunity to consider the extent to which facial expressions are significant within Beckett’s own writing. In this essay, I argue that the postcards can be read alongside Beckett’s early novels, in particular, Murphy (English 1938, French 1947) and Watt (English 1953, French ...


Carlino’S Crossings: Stuart Hood, Dante And A Civil War In Tuscany (1943-4), Nick Havely Dec 2019

Carlino’S Crossings: Stuart Hood, Dante And A Civil War In Tuscany (1943-4), Nick Havely

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The essay – which forms part of a larger project on travelers across the Tuscan Apennines – addresses three aspects of Dante’s presence in the region: first the poet's documented associations with and references to the mountains in which Stuart Hood (1915-2011) would find himself during the later years of World War II; secondly how readers of Dante had traced those associations within this landscape, especially during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (from the rise of bourgeois tourism to the Second World War); and thirdly Hood's wartime journeys in the Apennines and the relevance of his reading of Dante ...


Materiality And Textuality: Editing And Rewriting The Lyric Dante In History, Laura Banella Dec 2019

Materiality And Textuality: Editing And Rewriting The Lyric Dante In History, Laura Banella

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The paper presents the MaTeLDa project (Materiality and Textuality: Editing and Rewriting the Lyric Dante in History, Università degli Studi di Padova, 2018-2020), which offers an interdisciplinary study of how Dante was received and ‘canonized’ in late medieval and early modern Italy. MaTeLDa envisages the analysis of a selection of Dante’s texts in material contexts, and of specific instances of the circulation and reception of his lyric poetry, thereby laying the basis for a better understanding of medieval and early modern authoriality; the qualities of books as ‘textual objects;’ and the ways in which context, form, and annotation in ...


Editions Of Dante In Bookshop Inventories Between The Fifteenth And The Sixteenth Centuries, A Bookshop Ledger And A Contract For Printing: Some Possible Interpretations, Elena Gatti Dec 2019

Editions Of Dante In Bookshop Inventories Between The Fifteenth And The Sixteenth Centuries, A Bookshop Ledger And A Contract For Printing: Some Possible Interpretations, Elena Gatti

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay compares three inventories (of warehouses and bookshops) and a ledger - all datable to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries - to assess the influence of the commentaries for the fortunes of Dante’s Commedia and the reading tastes of readers in Bologna and Ferrara. It will also provide a brief history of the reception of Dante’s works in this period.


“La Guerra De La Pietate:” Dante’S Definition Of Moral Subject In The ‘Inferno’, Thomas Rendall Dec 2019

“La Guerra De La Pietate:” Dante’S Definition Of Moral Subject In The ‘Inferno’, Thomas Rendall

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Although a pun on the word pietà has been widely recognized in Virgil’s rebuke to Dante for pitying the diviners and sorcerers in Inferno20, the possibility of a double meaning for the word in the poem’s statement of the subject in Canto 2 has generally been ignored. That a pun is present, however, is supported by the source for this passage in the meeting between the hero and his father in Book 6 of the Aeneid—a context in which the word’s Latin root meaning “filial piety” is clearly implied. By the Early Middle Ages “duty to ...


"Sonus Qui Non Est Vox:" Sound And Voice In The Body Politic, Alison Cornish Dec 2019

"Sonus Qui Non Est Vox:" Sound And Voice In The Body Politic, Alison Cornish

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

From the knocking on the gate after Macbeth’s murder of Duncan to the sound of Ugolino’s teeth on the skull of his enemy, the suicide’s violent excretion of words and blood, Calvino’s “king who listens,” the Sicilian bull and the heavenly talking eagle, this essay considers the difference between the sound made by a voice and sounds that are merely instrumental or artificial as a feature of the body politic indicative of tyranny or justice.

Vice & Virtue As Woman?: The Iconography Of Gender Identity In The Late Anglo-Saxon Psychomachia Illustrations, Stephenie Mcgucken Oct 2019

Vice & Virtue As Woman?: The Iconography Of Gender Identity In The Late Anglo-Saxon Psychomachia Illustrations, Stephenie Mcgucken

Medieval Feminist Forum: A Journal of Gender and Sexuality

In the Late Anglo-Saxon illustrated manuscripts of Prudentius's Psychomachia, vice and virtue are often shown ambiguously and the audience is encouraged to question what is male and what is female, and whether such categories are appropriate in understanding these illustrations. This paper utilises transgender theory to demonstrate how gender could be deployed in Late Anglo-Saxon manuscripts to question the roles of men and women with the ultimate aim of stressing the importance of righteous behaviours.


Ritratto Di Un Uomo Con Simboli: Lorenzo Lotto On Vice And Virtue, Victor Hurtado Feb 2019

Ritratto Di Un Uomo Con Simboli: Lorenzo Lotto On Vice And Virtue, Victor Hurtado

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

The art of Lorenzo de Tomasso Lotto (1480-1557) has until recently gained critical attention. Lotto, born in Venice to Tomasso Lotto, lived and traveled throughout Italy. The Portrait of Man with Allegorical Symbols on display at the El Paso Museum of Art is one of Lotto’s most elusive paintings. A man of about thirty years of age is portrayed on a neutral background and divides a set of six allegorical symbols in axially. He gestures toward a set of three symbols hanging from a festoon of laurel leaves: an armillary sphere, intertwined palm branches, and a full-blown bladder. A ...


Music And The Act Of Song In Dante’S ‘Purgatorio’ And ‘Paradiso’, Kevin Brownlee Dec 2018

Music And The Act Of Song In Dante’S ‘Purgatorio’ And ‘Paradiso’, Kevin Brownlee

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The present paper explores the relation between the vernacular words used to designate the Act of Song, and the inscribed texts of the Sung Music itself, by considering a set of key cases first in Purgatory and then in Paradise. It focuses on important moments of structural and literary transition, at the same time as showing how sung sacred texts relate to each other (and to other kinds of passages) in important functional ways. I examine how song works in five key moments of the protagonist’s journey: the exit from the final terrace of the Purgatorial mountain, and the ...
