Philosophy Of Intellect And Vision In The De Anima And De Intellectu Of Alexander Of Aphrodisias, John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Philosophy Of Intellect And Vision In The De Anima And De Intellectu Of Alexander Of Aphrodisias, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

The paper examines the conceptions of intellect and vision as developed by Alexander of Aphrodisias from the De anima of Aristotle. There are three intellects: material (potential), in habitus, and productive, which is "intelligible in act." Intellectual activity is necessary to give form to memory traces in the imaginative faculty (phantasia).


Philosophy Of Intellect And Vision In The De Anima Of Themistius, John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Philosophy Of Intellect And Vision In The De Anima Of Themistius, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

Themistius departs from the Aristotelian tradition and divides thinking into imagination and judgment. Imagination is a faculty for discernment, in which an image is formed. Imagination is distinguished from sense perception; the relation between imagination and sense perception is the same as the relation between sense perception and the object of sense perception.

Architecture As The Psyche Of A Culture, John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Architecture As The Psyche Of A Culture, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

In that architecture is a kind of language, with a vocabulary of foms, certain elements of architecture are shared throughout a culture, and architecture has the potential to be the most complete expression of the ideas, beliefs, and values of a culture.


Lincoln Cathedral: A Work Of Art, John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Lincoln Cathedral: A Work Of Art, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

Lincoln Cathedral is a work of architecture, and a work of art, as opposed to a bicycle shed, because the architectural forms of the cathedral contradict the structural function which they are supposed to visually represent.


Neoplatonism In The Liber Naturalis And Shifa: De Anima Or Metaphysica Of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Neoplatonism In The Liber Naturalis And Shifa: De Anima Or Metaphysica Of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

Platonic and Neoplatonic concepts can be seen to be interwoven with the basic Aristotelian model of intellect which Avicenna develops in his Liber Naturalis and Metaphysica. Influential Plotinian conceptions include reason principle and intellectual principle, the ascent to intellection through dialectic, the differentiation of intelligibles in the imaginative faculty, the sensible form as representation, and the source of the intelligible form exterior to intellect.

Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, Gregor Kalas 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, Gregor Kalas

Gregor A. Kalas

Cities, Texts and Social Networks examines the experiences of urban life from late antiquity through the close of the fifteenth century, in regions ranging from late Imperial Rome to Muslim Syria, Iraq and al-Andalus, England, the territories of medieval Francia, Flanders, the Low Countries, Italy and Germany. Together, the volume's contributors move beyond attempts to define 'the city' in purely legal, economic or religious terms. Instead, they focus on modes of organisation, representation and identity formation that shaped the ways urban spaces were called into being, used and perceived. Their interdisciplinary analyses place narrative and archival sources in communication ...


Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, Gregor Kalas, Diane Favro, Christopher Johanson 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, Gregor Kalas, Diane Favro, Christopher Johanson

Gregor A. Kalas

During the fourth and fifth centuries CE, statues populating the open areas of the Roman Forum preserved memories of the individuals represented in portraits. This visualization project contextualizes the now-dispersed statues and their inscribed bases in the public space of the late antique Forum. By following consecutively through the "Statues and Memory," "Ritual Experience," and "Spatial Context" links above, one can navigate through the spaces in which the statues once appeared. The statues are explained through their inscribed statue bases in the "Inscription Database" section and tied to display locations under the "Mapping Statues" heading.


Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

From the 9th-century conversion to Christianity until the 11th century, the ecclesiastical art and architecture of the Serbs, both Orthodox and Roman Catholic, shared the concurrent accomplishments of the Croats, Latins, and Greeks. All of these groups cohabited the territories between the rivers Bojana and Cetina in Duklja (Zeta, Montenegro), Zahumlje (Herzegovina), and their littoral. Wall *paintings, donor *portraits, inscriptions in Greek and Latin, and architectural *sculpture on *windows, portals, capitals, *chancel screens, *ciboria, and baptismal fonts, reveal influences of pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, and Byzantine models. Instructive examples come from the 9th-century *rotunda of St. Triphon at Kotor (809?), replaced by ...


Art And Architecture: Russia, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Russia, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Receiving Christianity only in 988/9, the East Slavic Rus' expressly appropriated art and architecture based on Byzantine models and elaborated their own styles. *Kiev, *Novgorod, and *Vladimir (Suzdalia) define the major foci of Rus' accomplishments in the pre-Mongolian period, before the 1230s. Only after the battle at *Kulikovo (1380) did monumental arts revive. And only when Prince Ivan the Great (r. 1462–1505) commissioned architects Aristotele Fioravanti and Alevisio Novi to work in the *Kremlin did the Italian Renaissance significantly influence Russian architecture.

Jelena Bogdanović

The Performativity Of Shrines In A Byzantine Church: The Shrines Of St. Demetrios / Перформативность Усыпальниц В Византийской Церкви: Святилища И Реликварии Св. Димитрия, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

The Performativity Of Shrines In A Byzantine Church: The Shrines Of St. Demetrios / Перформативность Усыпальниц В Византийской Церкви: Святилища И Реликварии Св. Димитрия, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Within the Byzantine ecclesiastical tradition, shrines — architectural structures which both enclosed and revealed saints’ remains — defined human bodies within the church space in a remarkable way. Starting in the fourth century, it became customary to exhume and move entire bodies, to permit their fragmentation, and to expose them in architectural settings other than the altar table in the sanctuary space. This practice echoed popular and private piety, which included reporting of miracles of saintly relics that recalled Gospels’ miracles and the hope for corporeal salvation. -- В византийской церковной традиции усыпальницы представляли собой архитектурные конструкции, которые одновременно и скрывали останки святых ...


Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, pablo rosser 2009 COLABORADOR HONORÍFICO UNIVERSIDAD ALICANTE

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
