The Vision of Architecture in Religious Reform Movements (15th-16th

A Comparative Assessment.

This panel aims to compare studies whose topic has been the relationship
between architecture and religious reform in the fifteenth and sixteenth
centuries, prior to the Counter-Reformation, including the Observantist
movements and the Devotio moderna. Among the questions we would like to
address are: was the aspiration to reinstating the ideal spirit of the
early Christian communities expressed through architecture? To what extent
did reform principles affect the appearance and layout of churches and
monasteries? Did reformed orders and congregations contribute to the
circulation of new architectural ideas and models? Eventually, did
all’antica architecture constitute a relevant aspect of religious reform?

Topics may include the directives of religious orders and congregations,
buildings of given regions (in Italy and Europe), and also in-depth
investigations on relevant cases of churches, monasteries, and patronage.

Papers may be proposed and given either in English or Italian. Please send
an abstract (maximum of 150 words), a short CV, and contact information to
Andrea Guerra and Paola Modesti by May 20th.
