[Paper:] Torsten Hiltmann: Heraldry and Materiality – Oxford, 1 March 2017

In recent years the concept of materiality has become more and more important in historical research. In going beyond the study of texts and images, scholarship now also addresses the materiality of their media, as well as the role physical objects may have played in different historical settings. This talk will explore the relationship between coats of arms and the concept of materiality. First, the talk will focus on...

[Paper:] Lucie Jardot: Les sceaux des comtesses de Flandre et de Hainaut (XIIIe-XVe siècles). Des représentations princières au pouvoir politique, le discours par l’image et ses problématiques matrimoniales – Paris, 16 février 2017

Comme la plupart des femmes de leur rang, les comtesses de Flandre et de Hainaut, se dotent à l’occasion de leur mariage d’un sceau les représentant, jusqu’au milieu du XIVème siècle, en pieds accostées des armes de leur père et de leur époux. Après cette période on assiste à la modification de ce modèle. Dès lors, ce type de figuration est abandonné au profit de l’héraldique. Cette intervention est...

[Paper:] Display, Deface, Destroy: Heraldische Kommunikation als Medium adeliger Repräsentation und städtischen Protests – Münster, 01.02.2017

Obwohl die Heraldik in der öffentlichen Wahrnehmung beinahe exklusiv in den Sphären von Rittertum und Adel verortet zu sein scheint, waren Wappen doch auch in der Stadt des Mittelalters ein allgegenwärtiger Anblick. Stadtbürger waren von ihrem Gebrauch keineswegs ausgeschlossen: Tatsächlich zierten die Wappen der Bürgerfamilien und ihrer korporativen Zusammenschlüsse wie Gilden, Bruderschaften und, in Gestalt des Stadtwappens, der Bürgergemeinschaft selbst in vielerlei Form die Türme und Tore, Rat-, Zunft-...

[Paper:] Tania Levy: L’héraldique dans la ville, l’exemple de Lyon – Paris, 13 octobre 2016

La ville de Lyon des années 1500 présente un visage bien particulier, point de départ des expéditions italiennes, ville de séjour des rois et surtout cité de consuls parfois soucieux de leur indépendance. À cette époque – mais déjà dès la fin du XIVe siècle – les armoiries urbaines apparaissent régulièrement à certains endroits stratégiques. La place accordée aux armoiries doit ainsi être interrogée : où figurent-elles dans la...
