Professor Wood beskriver sin föreläsning 

In fourteenth-century Florence non-clerical Christians, through patronage, pilgrimage, and confraternities or lay brotherhoods, won ever more direct access to the sacred sphere. For the first time lay patrons had themselves depicted in sacred paintings, in proximity to the depictions of sacred events and in attitudes of devotion. This paper focuses on a single large painting representing the Lamentation over the Dead Christ (ca. 1370), attributed to Giottino. Here two unidentified women share pictorial space with the body of Christ and with the historical mourners at the foot of the Cross, as well as with two medieval saints who act as their sponsors. The painting is interpreted as a test of the limits of mortal participation in the divine story.

Föreläsningen sker i samarbete med Uppsala universitet.
