From the BBAW:

Antiquitatum Thesaurus: Antiken in den Wissensspeichern der Frühen Neuzeit und heute
Online, Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, 10 November 2021, 8pm

Registration due by 9 November 2021

Please join us for the inaugural online event of the Antiquitatum Thesaurus project, a long-term project initiated at the beginning of 2021 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and devoted to documenting the tradition of antique material culture in visual sources from the 17th and 18th centuries. Under the direction of Elisabeth Décultot, Arnold Nesselrath, and Ulrich Pfisterer, the project aims to study a large corpus of diverse source material ranging from printed books to drawing collections and culminating in Bernard de Montfaucon’s L’Antiquités expliquée et représentée en figures in order to contribute to our understanding of the early modern views of the remains of Antiquity throughout Europe and the Mediterranean by identifying and cataloguing objects that—beyond ancient literary texts—served as reference points for antiquarians. All the information gathered in the process will be stored in a digital research platform that will illustrate and visualize the complex relationships between objects, sources, places, and people over time.
