Conferencia de Kathleen Maxwell (Madrid, 30 de octubre de 2014): Paris gr. 54 and the Union of Lyon: Renewal, Reunion, Reform, and Rejection



Paris, BnF, gr. 54—a bilingual Greek and Latin illustrated Byzantine Gospel book—is a singular reflection of the Emperor Michael VIII’s efforts to renew relations with Rome through the union of the Greek and Latin Churches. Paris 54’s bilingual text, expanded narrative cycle with scenes related to St. Peter, and its many unfinished aspects can best be understood if it was conceived as a diplomatic gift, commissioned by the Byzantine emperor for the Latin pope. This paper will explore the contentious response to Michael VIII’s efforts to implement renewal and reform in late thirteenth-century Constantinople.

 
Kathleen Maxwell es profesora de Historia del arte en la Santa Clara University de California. Es experta en manuscritos bizantinos iluminados y acaba de publicar una monografía sobre el tema de la conferencia:
