    Long ago in a galaxy far, far away, fewer galaxies were born than expected -- and that could create new questions for galaxy physics, according to a new University of Michigan study.

The images were taken with Hyper Suprime- Cam on the Subaru telescope, located at nearly 14,000 ft above sea level on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii [Credit: Smercina et al....

    The first appearance of trilobites in the fossil record dates to 521 million years ago in the oceans of the Cambrian Period, when the continents were still inhospitable to most life forms. Few groups of animals adapted as successfully as trilobites, which were arthropods that lived on the seabed for 270 million years until the mass extinction at the end of the Permian approximately 252 million years ago. Brazilian researchers used...

    During the European Middle Ages, literacy and written texts were largely the province of religious institutions. Richly illustrated manuscripts were created in monasteries for use by members of religious institutions and by the nobility. Some of these illuminated manuscripts were embellished with luxurious paints and pigments, including gold leaf and ultramarine, a rare and expensive blue pigment made from lapis lazuli stone. Dental...

    Early Christian monks wrote about experiencing visions of God through an ascetic practice of sacred spectating. Numerous texts denote this monastic tenet with the Greek word theōria. In this talk, I propose that the implications of sacred spectating reach beyond its literary treatment. The notion of spectating divine truths contributed also to the creation of richly decorated spaces within the monastic built environments that supported the practice of theōria.

    Florence Garambois-Vasquez, Natura delectat : Ars et Natura dans la création poétique d'Ausone, Saint-Étienne, 2018.

    Éditeur : Publications de l'université de Saint-Étienne
    Collection : Mémoire du Centre Jean Palerne - Collection Antiquité
    186 pages
    ISBN : 978-2-86272-708-0

    Notable de Gaule Aquitaine, personnage public, ayant évolué dans les cercles les plus proches du pouvoir de son temps, Ausone est une figure majeure du ive siècle de notre ère. Chantre d'une poésie raffinée et érudite, moins « politiquement engagé » que d'autres de ses contemporains, le poète aquitain a longtemps souffert d'un « déficit » d'image et a parfois été considéré comme un poète habile mais ennuyeux. Cet ouvrage se propose de déconstruire ces critiques en abordant l'oeuvre du poète par une double thématique, qui, dans l'Antiquité, fonctionne quasiment comme un couple dialectique, celle de l'art et la nature. Le questionnement qui en découle cherche à montrer l'extrême subtilité de cette production poétique ainsi que sa dimension ludique incontestable.

    In advance of the exhibition on the Villa dei Papiri that will open at the Getty Villa in June, the bronze statue of a Drunken Satyr has arrived in Malibu from MANN, and we have written a blog with an embedded video that might well be of interest: An Introduction to the Drunken Satyr

    I wanted to preface my review of the movie Bohemiah Rhapsody (which I posted yesterday) with some of the thoughts and interest I brought with me to the movie. But I soon saw that those would make much more sense in a separate post, and so I am including them here. I’ve begun working on […]
