AbstractThis session examines cultural and artistic exchanges between Italy and the Eastern Mediterranean. The first paper focuses on miracle-working images in Bologna, reflecting on how a real or fictitious Eastern origin affected the perceived power of miraculous artworks. It also considers the reasons behind a shift in this tendency, which saw images with well-established Western origin ascend to the status of venerated Eastern objects. The second paper examines the iconography of the Coronation of the Virgin, a Western iconography that nonetheless often presents Eastern connotations. It also explores Marian images more broadly, observing how the coming together of Eastern and Western iconographies and stylistic approaches develops into a new type of narrative describing the last days of the Virgin.
