Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims: Joint study of iconography and archaeological context. Introduction to scientific research on the figurative culture of Late Antiquity.

Contents:
Dreams and prophetic visions had a great influence on the religions of the ancient cultures of the Near East and the Greco-Roman world as well as in Judaism and early Christianity. The dream as a different dimension from the perceivable reality, was the ideal place for the encounter with the sacred and the divine. Often the theophany in dreams was linked to a prophecy and the revelation, by divine inspiration, of a future event. The practice of incubation was also linked to dreams.
Moving from the comparison with the art of classic past, the course will focus on the most significant depictions of biblical characters and episodes connected to dreams and prophetic revelations both in Jewish and early Christian archaeological contexts. The analysis will be devoted not only to their figurative representations in painting, sculpture and others records, but also to their widest relationships with the visual culture of Late Antiquity.

Method of the course:
Historical analysis and contextualization of archaeological and iconographic sources; descriptions of images, scientific analysis and discussion; external lectures held by invited scholars will enrich the program.
