Staging the liturgy : the medieval altarpiece in the Iberian peninsula by J. E. A Kroesen( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spain and Portugal possess a wealth of medieval churches, including many with original furnishings. Most outstanding of all is the altarpiece or 'retablo', the epitome of Iberian ecclesiastical art. With its exceptional dimensions, architectural structure and extensive imagery, it became clearly distinct from altarpieces elsewhere in Europe. The retable cannot be understood simply as an artistic genre, but must be viewed in its spatial surroundings and against its religious and socio-cultural background. In the present study, the medieval altarpiece in the Iberian Peninsula is approached as a witness to liturgy, faith and devotion. Part I sketches its morphological development from its origins around 1100 to the end of the Gothic age in the first half of the sixteenth century. Part II analyses the retable in its spatial context, formed by the architecture of the church building and other elements of the interior such as the choir. In Part III the retable is discussed as a means of communication, conveying a message between the patron who commissioned it and the recipients. Both as an art object and as a bearer of imagery, the altar retable played an important part in the staging of liturgy in the medieval church of the Iberian Peninsula. --

The Sepulchrum Domini through the ages : its form and function by J. E. A Kroesen( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and French and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the centuries, commemoration of the events happened at Golgotha has been given form and expression in Western European Christian tradition in two different ways: through the visual arts (architecture and sculpture), and within the liturgy. development of the Holy Sepulchre as a central theme within the tradition of Western European Christianity. Its aim is to cover both representation and function. Two lines are followed in the study, corresponding to these two aspects. The first analyses the historical development of the Holy Sepulchre in its many manifestations from late Antiquity up to the present day, with particular attention to the cultural and historic context. This section is well illustrated with over a hundred photographs (partly in colour) and many ground-plans. The second section consists of an analysis of the use of the Holy Sepulchre throughout the centuries, including a description of the liturgical function of the Easter sepulchre during the Holy Week and Easter, and its role in worship. The final chapter presents the main areas in which various aspects of manifestations and function complement each other.--Publisher
Ultimate ambiguities : investigating death and liminality by Peter Berger( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Periods of transition are often symbolically associated with death, making the latter the paradigm of liminality. Yet, many volumes on death in the social sciences and humanities do not specifically address liminality. This book investigates these "ultimate ambiguities," assuming they can pose a threat to social relationships because of the disintegrating forces of death, but they are also crucial periods of creativity, change, and emergent aspects of social and religious life. Contributors explore death and liminality from an interdisciplinary perspective and present a global range of historical and contemporary case studies outlining emotional, cognitive, artistic, social, and political implications

Sacred places in modern western culture by Paulus Gijsbertus Johannes Post( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sacred spaces in contemporary Western culture are subject to a dynamics in which the traditional forms of ritual are increasingly marginalised and new forms emerge. In Western Europe churches are growing empty, whereas new rituals - for instance those surrounding the victims of violence - are gaining prominence and are mediatized in a variety of ways. The destruction of churches, the rise of increasingly multi-religious urban ritual spaces, the remarkable vitality of places of pilgrimage and war cemeteries and the growing popularity of lieux de mémoire in general show the changing landscapes of ritual spaces in modern Western culture. This book aims at describing and analyzing the profound changes and developments that are presently taking place. In the main part of this volume the broad field of ritual spaces is explored in contributions on various modern 'sacred places'

From conservation to interpretation : studies of religious art (c. 1100-c. 1800) in Northern and Central Europe in honour of Peter Tångeberg by J. E. A Kroesen( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology and conservation are indispensible to our understanding of the history of religious art. Material and technical aspects of historical art works yield a great deal of information about provenance, and thus reflect the cultural networks that characterized the world that produced them. Furthermore, the imagery and decoration of art works express their religious meanings, while details including reworking and damage may inform us about their use (or disuse) in liturgy and devotion. The Swedish conservator and art historian Peter Tangeberg has shown how the insights and methods of art conservation can make important steps in the history of art (not least religious art). He has brought the wealth of medieval and early modern art works in Scandinavia to a European audience and opened up new discussions - as well as stirring up old ones - on a range of aspects, including the transfer of styles and motifs, materials and technologies across Central and Northern Europe. This volume, which is dedicated to Tangeberg by fifteen friends and colleagues on the occasion of his 75th birthday, reflects much of his long and fruitful professional life.0All of the contributions pursue a combined perspective on technical/material issues and contextual (mostly liturgical or devotional) aspects. The art works cover the period from c. 1100 to c. 1800 and all originated in the wide area of Tangeberg's scholarly activity, especially Scandinavia and large parts of Western and Central Europe
Kirchen in Ostfriesland und ihre mittelalterliche Ausstattung by J. E. A Kroesen( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In vielen der rund 135 mittelalterlichen Kirchen der ostfriesischen Halbinsel haben sich wichtige Teile der Ausstattung aus der Zeit vor der Reformation erhalten. Diese Stücke - von den Lutheranern und Calvinisten entweder weitergenutzt, umgenutzt oder nicht genutzt - wurden für diese Studie der Universität Groningen (Niederlande), zum ersten Mal umfassend in ihrem wechselseitigen Zusammenhang untersucht. Der Fokus liegt auf den Elementen, die im liturgischen Ritus von Bedeutung waren bzw. dessen Dekor darstellten. Die 20 Kapitel sind wie ein Rundgang durch ein fiktives Kirchengebäude aufgebaut, angefangen beim Altar im Chor und endend bei den Tauf- und Weihwasserbecken im Westen der Kirche. Anhand zahlreicher Farbfotos werden dem Leser die Gegenstände als Zeugen der Frömmigkeit und des Kunstsinns in ihrer räumlichen Umgebung vor Augen geführt

Religie en cultuur in hedendaags Nederland : observaties en interpretaties( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in Dutch and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Achttien onderzoekers uit verschillende vakgebieden verkennen het religieuze landschap van het hedendaagse Nederland. Zij observeren en interpreteren tendensen en verschijnselen op het snijvlak van religie, cultuur en samenleving. In de afgelopen halve eeuw verloor de traditionele kerkgang steeds meer terrein. Nieuwe vormen van religiositeit doken op. Gelovigen zochten hun heil bij nieuwe bewegingen en alternatieve stromingen. Wat betekenden deze ontwikkelingen voor de gelovigen zelf? In welk opzicht veranderden hun religieuze gevoelens en rituele praktijken? Wat waren de gevolgen voor de rol van religie in de politiek en de populaire cultuur? Hoe religieus is Nederland eigenlijk nog? Dergelijke vragen staan centraal in deze bundel. De bijdragen gaan in op thema's als gezag, geweld, etniciteit, kunst, literatuur en muziek. Religie vormt hierbij telkens de rode draad. Duidelijk wordt dat veelgehoorde stellingen over óf de verdwijning óf de terugkeer van religie geen recht doen aan de complexiteit van religieuze en culturele trends

De protestantse pastorie in Noord-Nederland : vijf eeuwen leven en werken by Vijf eeuwen leven en werken in de Noord-Nederlandse pastorie (Veranstaltung)( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in Dutch and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In veel Noord-Nederlandse dorpen is de ambtswoning van de dominee - de 'pastorie' - onmiddellijk herkenbaar als een statig historisch pand naast de kerk. Deze rijk geïllustreerde bundel behandelt de pastorie niet alleen als gebouw, maar ook als werk- en leefruimte van haar bewoners: predikanten en hun gezinnen. Aan de hand van historische bijdragen en interviews met hedendaagse bewoners ontstaat een beeld van de rijke geschiedenis en de veranderende betekenis van de protestantse pastorie in het Noord-Nederlandse cultuurlandschap. In onze tijd dreigt het traditionele 'pastorieleven' als gevolg van de ontkerkelijking te verdwijnen. Een constante bij alle veranderingen is dat de pastorie door de eeuwen heen in een waas van geheimzinnigheid gehuld is geweest. Dit boek biedt een inkijk achter de voordeur van dit bijzondere huis - nu het nog kan
