Heather Coffey, Ontario College of Art & Design University

A Floating Tomb and Perfidious Vision in Noël de Fribois' Mirouer historial abregié de France

Dr. Coffey’s research encompasses themes related to Christian and Islamic cross- and inter-cultural relations in Medieval Mediterranean and Italian Renaissance Art and Architecture. She has published articles concerning the relation between the spread of mi‘raj texts in translation and the efflorescence of illustrated manuscripts of Beatus of Liébana’s Commentary on the Apocalypse in Spain from c. 940-1250; the devotional motivations of the miniaturization of Qur’anic and other religious texts within Islam; and the somatomorphic representation of the Prophet Muhammad in fourteenth- and fifteenth-century illustrations of Dante Alighieri’s Divina Commedia. She was the first doctoral candidate at Indiana University to be awarded a multi-year fellowship at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, affiliated with the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, in Florence, Italy. Her research has also been funded by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada / Conseil de recherches en sciences humaines du Canada (SSHRC / CRSH); the Royal Historical Society of Great Britain, and the Qatar Foundation.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required.  For further information, please contact the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, (416) 585-4468.

For 51 years, the TRRC has presented for Southern Ontario a lecture series on Renaissance and early modern topics, as well as organized panels and supported small conferences. An independent organization with no institutional budget of its own, TRRC depends on memberships to mount its programs. Your contribution helps us sustain our activities for the benefit of a wide community of scholars and students, specialists and those with general interest. We appreciate your support. We  ask you therefore please to fill out and send in the membership form attached HERE and return it to Konrad Eisenbichler. Our yearly dues are very modest, so perhaps you could pay for three years (2015-2018) at once and really help us to plan well for the future.

Thank you!

The TRRC steering committee for 2015-16: Elizabeth Cohen (Chair),  Konrad Eisenbichler (Secretary-Treasurer), Germaine Warkentin (Past Chair), William Bowen, David Goldstein.
