Hexaemeron Icon Carving Workshop
Sep 11 – Sep 17 all-day

 SIX DAYS OF CREATION courses in icon carving are open to 10 students at each site. This ancient art is taught through both practical work and theory. From the earliest sarcophagi to lavish ivory miniatures to the austere Russian low reliefs, icon carving has been a vibrant part of the Orthodox Tradition. Students will have the opportunity to carve either in either wood or stone. Those wishing to carve in wood are expected to have a basic understanding of woodworking as the course will focus on carving rather than technical aspects like laminating panels or sharpening tools. Although tools will be available, students should bring whatever gouges they have, ideally 1 straight gouge, 1 scoop gouge and 1 “V” gouge. For those wishing to carve stone, tools will be made available. Each student is expected to leave with at least one finished icon by the end of the class.

Sponsored Session, Byzantine Studies Conference: Ithaca, NY
Oct 8 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Session Title: Defining Cults in Byzantium (Session 7A)

Session Date: Oct 8, 2016 (2:00 PM – 4:00 PM). Sponsored session.

Recent publications on the Virgin, icons, and relics have stimulated anew discussions on cults and cultic practices in Byzantium. Scholars are re-examining the ways in which a cult is made manifest in architecture, monumental decorative programs, images, and luxury arts. There is also interest in phenomenology, senses, and emotions, and their place in cultic experiences. The traditional definition of cult is once again being considered and debated. This session brings together distinct approaches that will stimulate further debate on the definition of cults, and question the ways in which art, architecture, and related texts can provide evidence for a cult’s origin, duration, decentralization, and audiences.
