Vision Makes the World Go 'Round: The World in Light of Ancient Visual Sources; Izaak J. de Hulster, PhD; November 15, 2016
In this lecture, Izaak de Hulster focuses on concepts of vision and light. De Hulster uses iconographic exegesis to analyze various interpretations of these visual sources in iconographic motifs. De Hulster addresses cosmic geography and its relation to the notion of order in antiquity. This lecture concentrates on a specific group of symbols that have significance to ancient constitutions of ecology. In addition to being present in the ancient world, de Hulster contends that these ecological understandings still have relevance today.
