Interpretations of Longinus in Art Thought and Literature of the Early Modern Period.

This hybrid Conference focuses on the reception of Longinus’s treatise Peri Hypsous (1st century AD). Taking into consideration that it is not often we possess direct evidence concerning the Longinian sublime as a productive theory in the early modern times, our primary interest lies in bringing forth possible interpretations and discussing the issue of reception of works of art, literature and the intellectual thinking of the period. The network of acquaintance with the notion of the sublime will also be opened up towards diverse themes, such as politics, religion, the aesthetics of antiquity and the Renaissance. We also believe that cross-disciplinary approaches will enlighten significantly the tackling of a complex problem such as the reception of Longinian ideas in the field of art history and beyond.
