Colloque Miroirs de Charles IX

I am in Paris currently, participating in an interdisciplinary conference on Miroirs de Charles IX: Images, Imaginaires, Symboliques at the Institut National de l’Histoire de l’Art.

The conference is tightly focused, with presentations by historians, art historians, and literary scholars on the imagery of Charles IX, who was king of France during the early phases of the French Wars of Religion from 1561-1574. Charles IX is best known for presiding over the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre of Huguenots (French Protestants) in Paris in August 1572. The conference deals with the complex imagery of majesty, justice, piety, peace, and war utilized by the king and his councilors during his reign.

The conference was organized by Luisa Capodieci, Estelle Leutrat, and Rebecca Zorach.

The scientific committee for the conference included: Andreas Beyer, Luisa Capodieci, Olivier Christin, Philippe Desan, Marianne Grivel, Estelle Leutrat, Philippe Morel, Henri Zerner, and Rebecca Zorach.

The program is available online at the website of the Université de Paris I.
