The Borghesi-Mellon Workshop on “Jerusalem in the Medieval and Modern Imagination” Presents:
“Twelfth-century Maps of the Holy Land: Image, Context, Function”
A Public Lecture by
PNINA ARAD (Ph.D. Hebrew University, Jerusalem)
Thursday, October 29 @ 12:00 noon
Dr. Pnina Arad will consider how circular maps of Jerusalem were made on the basis of a new genre of pilgrimage guides that appeared in the West in the first years of the century and will focus on the potential use of these maps as aids for conducting virtual pilgrimages to Jerusalem (when the concept and practice of virtual pilgrimage by means of visual imagery had not yet been developed in the West). She will also present the strategy by which these maps conceptualized the biblical landscape as a physical reflection of Christ’s life (in relation to the devotion to the humanity of Christ at the time).
This lecture is free and open to the public.
This event will be held virtually, over Zoom.
