French version below. 18–20 September 2019 Antwerp: Grauwzusters Cloister of the University of Antwerp Over the past decades, the study of the adoption and use of arms within a wide range of social groups has questioned the exclusive association between heraldry and nobility.

[Question:] Dear heraldists, we need your input: How did you learn to blazon?

Dear heraldists, dear fellow researchers, As a part of my studies, I am looking at concepts of ‚proper‘ blazon in general, and differences and parallels between the English, French, and German systems and traditions of blazoning in particular. For example, I plan to do some work on the ways in which heraldic ordinaries and charges are categorised and the rationale behind these categorisations. In this context, I am curious...

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

This talk will explore the relationship between coats of arms and the concept of materiality. First, the talk will focus on...

[Paper:] Julie Marquer (Lyon): Les salles d’apparat de l’Alcazar du roi Pierre Ier à Séville (XIVe siècle)

L’Alcazar de Pierre Ier de Castille construit à Séville entre 1356 et 1366 constitue un bon exemple du rôle que peut jouer l’architecture dans le renforcement du pouvoir royal.

Dans la lignée de ces...

[CfA:] State-Rooms of Royal and Princely Palaces in Europe (14th-16th c.): Spaces, Images, Rituals – Lisbon/Sintra, 15-17 March 2017 (Programme)

From the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, European monarchies saw a gradual centralisation of power. This was accompanied by the dissemination of political ideas that contributed to the making of a new image of the prince, which relied on visual instruments to assert and construct the prince’s sovereign power.
