Conference Responsible Society In Early Modern Christianity 2022

Conference: The Responsible Society in Early Modern Christianity

Voices & Fruits

Social responsibility as the moral obligation individuals or organizations have towards the wellbeing of society, is a key topic in 21st century public debate. The conference centers on the question how this topic was dealt with in Early Modern Christianity (ca.1400-ca.1700) as a period that brought about fundamental and long-lasting changes and brought forth inspiring individuals with innovative ideas. The conference seeks to shed historic light on the relevant issue of social responsibility in the expectation that academic research comes up with inspirational results. The conference is interdisciplinary and comparative regarding various geographical and confessional positions.

Antica Norba

Early Roman Imperialism in the Making

The course adopts a diachronic and systemic perspective with a focus on archaeology, in order to better understand Rome’s initial expansion between the late Regal and mid-Republican period (mid 6th to 3th century BC). Through a critical reading of Rome’s material record and that of Rome’s competitors in contemporary central Tyrrhenian Italy, you will explore the characteristics and socio-economic impact of early Roman expansion and colonisation, and evaluate different theories regarding the nature of early Roman imperialism.

Raphael was a prominent member of a network that would have a dramatic impact on cultural history, including the most prominent humanists and antiquarians of the period. During this course we will look at the way Antiquity was interpreted by Raphael and his peers, and at the reception of Raphael’s antiquity by subsequent generations. Most of all we will discuss and visit the Roman works of the master himself, in painting, drawing, architecture and antiquarian scholarship.
