Martindale Lecture 2021

“Who Was Richer In Glittering Wealth Than Solomon?”: Carolingian Values

Professor Aden Kumler (Universität Basel)

Thursday 13 May, 5pm (UK Time)

In the eighth and ninth centuries, Carolingian rulers, intellectuals, and artists pursued a major experiment in worldly and spiritual economics. This lecture examines how a series of Carolingian works of art and artifacts crafted—often quite polemically—a vision of the economy of salvation, defined by the commensuration of aesthetic, material, and sacred value.

The Martindale Lecture, organised in honour of the late Professor Andrew Martindale, has run in the Department of Art History and World Art Studies at the University of East Anglia since 1998, and invites a distinguished speaker in medieval and early modern art history to give a talk on their work.

This event is free and all are welcome! We would normally look forward to welcoming attendees in Norwich, but this year the event is going to be held online, followed by a virtual reception using Wonder. A link to access the talk online will be circulated to registered attendees 1 day before the event.
