Michelangelo’s Risen Christ: a Medieval Iconography in the Years of the Religious Reform

Focusing on Michelangelo Buonarroti's Risen Christ, this presentation explores Michelangelo’s adoption of a particular type of Medieval ‘Man of Sorrows’, an iconography closely related to the Easter celebrations as well as to the cult of the Corpus Christi. It demonstrates how Michelangelo’s Risen Christ conflates a multiplicity of eucharistic, pietistic, and devotional meanings and functions that reflect the interest of certain Roman circles in the rediscovery of more pious and archaizing forms of religiosity during the decades that led to the Counter Reformation.

Gloria De Liberali is a PhD student in the Division of Art History.
