Horst Bredekamp in Cambridge

Today Professor Horst Bredekamp will be giving this year’s DH Green lecture:

“Rupture and Continuation: Aachen and Leon as reflectors of Antiquity”.

Before this event, the GBR team have had an informal chat with him on various aspects of the project – including a discussion on the idea of the artist-genius as criminal, based on a text by Bredekamp.

Information on the lecture: Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College, 5 pm. More details here.

Meeting with Debora Shuger

This morning we were very lucky to have Debora Shuger with us, talking about her work on Melanchthon and his notion of ‘genius’.

Debora Shuger (UCLA) is currently a Visiting Fellow at CRASSH, invited by the Crossroads project.

She will be one of the plenary speakers at the forthcoming conference Crossroads of Knowledge: Literature and Theology in Early Modern England (14 February, 2015). More details about this event here.
