A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
  無論是作為雄偉建築外部或其內別緻的裝飾,中世紀的雕刻藝術皆富有沉穩、歷久彌新的名聲。本次研討會藉由探討中世紀雕刻藝術營造出的感官環境對於儀式與展演性的實踐之關係,來挑戰對於這些雕刻既有的概念與想法。
  中世紀的宗教儀式利用了許多物件及材料,且透過視覺、音樂及物質層面激發多重知覺感受。隨著瀰漫於空中香薰和音樂,雕刻品常常提供了視覺及觸覺感受以補足感官體驗。為了理解中世紀宗教儀式的社會性及其身體動覺與神聖場域之關係,雕刻藝術為最重要之媒介。雕刻藝術提供了一個實體的連結助於研究中世紀宗教儀式的展演及當時後的活動。此次研討會旨在有別於視覺特性之外,啟發中世紀雕刻藝術更深層的探討。
  此次題目含括墓碑上的儀式內容、禮拜用之道具、遊行上的雕塑品、聖骨盒、膜拜用雕像,及教會用之物品。
Fixed to the facades of great buildings, or nestled within an elaborate architectural surround, medieval sculpture has a reputation as being static, immovable and durable. This session seeks to challenge these assumptions by examining the sensory environment of medieval sculpture and its relationship to ritual and performative practices.
Medieval rituals utilised a variety of objects and materials, and stimulated multiple senses through visual, musical and physical aspects of devotion. As incense burned and music filled the air, sculpture often provided a visual and tactile complement to these sensory experiences. The interactive role of sculpture is paramount for understanding the social qualities of medieval ritual and its bodily–kinaesthetic relationship to sacred space. Sculpture provides a tangible link to the study of ritual performance and a means of accessing the ephemeral activities central to medieval life. This session sets out to provide stimulating conversations on the study of medieval sculpture beyond the visible qualities of the medium.
Paper topics in this session might include examinations of the ritual context of funerary monuments, liturgical props, processional sculpture, reliquaries, cult statues and devotional objects, among others. We are also interested in papers that consider pedagogical approaches to ritual and offer new methodologies for their study. To supplement this session, we would like to propose a visit on the following day to Loughborough’s All Saints with Holy Trinity parish church to continue this conversation in a medieval space.
This session is facilitated by the Henry Moore Institute, a centre for the study of sculpture. It will incorporate the expertise of medieval sculpture scholars, including Dr Peter Dent (Bristol University and co-editor of Sculpture Journal) and Dr Stacy Boldrick (University of Leicester), who will serve as respondents to this session.
