A Museum of sacred art promotes a summer school on the theme “History in Icons”, with Professor. Plinio Freire Gomes.
In the world of culture, certain crucial moments embody artifacts of civilization. To be confused with the circumstances that illustrate and that keeps them alive, provide an insider's view on the history. More than works of art, are images-symbol-"icons"-a time.
In the first part of the course, will focus the Antiquity: the lush Egypt adventure of Alexander, the rise of Christianity to the rise of Islam. In the second, enquadraremos the passage between the middle ages and the modern age. The objective will be to examine an old theme, but increasingly loaded with interest in the contemporary world: the relationship between State and religion.
Prof. Plinio Freire Gomes: He is the author of “The heretic goes to heaven” (Companhia das Letras, 1997). He graduated and majored in history at the University of São Paulo. Lived for nearly two decades abroad, between Europe and the Middle East. He taught at MASP, MAM, House of knowledge and Maria Antonia University Center. Currently, presents conferences and courses on history of art, with focus on the Hellenistic periods, Roman and Renaissance. But his main area of expertise is the Islamic culture.
