Sacred Heart

Memory – Body – Image – Text:
Continuities and Discontinuities
Rome, November 8/9th 2019

The devotion to the Sacred Heart in a variety of perspectives will be the central focus of the international and pluri-disciplinary conference. Speakers from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, the US, Canada and Indonesia will focus on iconography, memory, emotion and body in the language, imagery and rituals of the Sacred Heart. A long-term perspective will allow identifying continuities and ruptures in a trans-national (and trans-continental) context.

Theologians, historians, religious scientists, sociologist and art historians will present and discuss their research and reflexions in the following sections:

  • Memory, Body, Emotion
  • Devotion – Transformations and Trans-Cultural Dimensions
  • Theological Reflections
