Kalamazoo 2010: "Spanish Interpretations of the Apocalypse: Exegesis, Text, and Image"
CFP: "Spanish Interpretations of the Apocalypse: Exegesis, Text, and Image"
Session sponsored by the Ibero-Medieval Association of North America
45th International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University
13-16 May 2010
How do Spanish interpretations of the Apocalypse in theological, exegetical, literary, and iconographical works distinctively respond to Iberian historical contexts? Do Spanish interpretations of the Apocalypse differ from those of other regions of Europe? These questions suggest the exploration of themes such as (but not limited to) the relationships between texts and apocalyptic iconography, popular and orthodox appropriations of apocalyptic prophecies and/ or images, the image of the Antichrist in the evolution of anti-heretical discourse in the context of the Reconquest, the didactic and/ or propagandistic aspirations in literary and/ or iconographic treatments of eschatological sources.
