O Descendimento da Cruz

Novas expressões corporais na Arte (sécs. XIV-XVI)

As the Middle Ages acquired new and delicate body expressions with the advent of Gothic and International Gothic, the artists felt more and more at ease to experience new postures, gestures and contortions of the human body. For that, Christ continued to be the artistic aesthetic reference. The theme of the Descent from the Cross served as the basis for this bodily experimentalism. Our proposal is to ascertain the different nuances of some artists regarding the theme between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Ética e Estética da Música na Filosofia de Ramon Llull (1232-1316)

Brief exposition of the importance of Music in Western aesthetic thought. Since Plato, and later, in the Middle Ages, San Isidore of Seville, Guido of Arezzo and Ramon Llull, all had thinkers who did meditations on the importance of the aesthetics of harmonic sounds for human existence. In relation to Llull, we deal with the subject from the works Doctrina pueril (c. 1274-1276), Fèlix o el Libre de meravelles (c. 1289), Arbre de Ciència (c. 1295-1296), Ars generalis ultima (c. 1305), Ars brevis (1308) and especially, the Libre de contemplació en Déu (c. 1273-1274).
