Mens immobilis. Recherches sur le corpus latin des actes et des passions d’Afrique romaine (IIe-VIe siècles)
S. Fialon

Depuis les travaux de Paul Monceaux, au début du XXe siècle, le corpus hagiographique africain a évolué : il s’est enrichi de la découverte de nouveaux textes, alors que d’autres documents ont dû être écartés. Une nouvelle synthèse complète sur cette littérature était nécessaire, et c’est donc un corpus mieux circonscrit, composé de trente actes et passions racontant le martyre de chrétiens entre le IIe et la fin du Ve siècle, qui est analysé dans cet ouvrage.

Van Dyck's Hosts in Genoa: Lucas and Cornelis de Wael's Lives, Business Activities and Works
A. Stoesser

Reviewed in The Burlington

"(...) scholars will benefit from Stoesser’s exacting analysis of precisely how artists navigated the commercial and creative aspects of marketing their works to clients – especially in Genoa – during the first half of the seicento. Few other authors go to the effort of explaining the foundations of artistic practice on a commercial level, to outline the main tenets of the theoretical discourse that subsumed the creation of many of these works, or of reviewing arcane source material (the reader learns, for example, that it took over one hundred different motions to load a musket, information cited to substantiate the accuracy of details in Cornelis’s military works)."

Timothy Standring, in: The Burlington Magazine, February 2019
