Apocalypse and the Vision of Medieval Rulership
October 21, 2000
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
On Saturday, October 21, 2000, a one-day symposium entitled "Apocalypse and the Vision of Medieval Rulership" will be held at Harvard University under the auspices of the Graduate School of Design and the Committee on Medieval Studies. Six speakers will present papers concerned with the ways in which Saint JohnÕs Book of Revelation and other apocalyptic texts inspired and shaped the expression of rulership in the European Middle Ages.
The meeting will be organized by Christine Smith (Graduate School of Design), and Michael S. Flier and Alfred Thomas (Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures). Besides textual references from contemporary history, literature, liturgy, and ritual, the participants will pay particular attention to the implementation of the visual arts, including architecture, as a means by which political ideology was manifested, not only among ruling elites in Western Europe, but in Central and Eastern Europe as well, specifically the German lands, Bohemia, and Muscovite RusÕ.
For more information, please contact Maureen Jennings in the Department of Architecture at (617) 496-1234 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
