Chrétientés et Islam par Alain Rauwel Compte-rendu de Mme F. Delaspre, IA-IPR. Les références citées dans le compte-rendu sont présentées dans le dossier Pearltrees associé à cet article (bas de page). Alain Rauwel trouve le nouveau programme bien formulé car privilégiant le comparatisme et l’entrée par les pouvoirs, et évitant la description des pratiques religieuses (le catéchisme, disait ses élèves jadis). L’entrée par les empires lui semble également pertinente. National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Séoul, Corée du Sud Since opening its door in 1969, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Korea has lived through the history of Korean art. In the process, MMCA established itself as a representative institution of Korean modern art. The museum’s four branches, including Gwacheon (opened in 1986), Deoksugung (opened in 1998), Seoul (opened in 2013), and Cheongju (expected to open in 2017), each in its own way, will continue to carry out MMCA’s commitment to the art and culture of Korea by enriching the first-hand cultural experience of the viewing public.
A faithful reconstruction of Constantinople, capital of the Eastern Roman Empire (1200 AD) Source: byzantium1200.com Constantinople was the capital city of the Byzantine (330–1204 and 1261–1453), and also of the brief Latin (1204–1261), and the later Ottoman (1453–1923) empires. It was reinaugurated in 324 AD from ancient Byzantium as the new capital of the Roman Empire by Emperor Constantine the Great, after whom it was named, and dedicated on 11 May 330 AD. From the mid-5th century to the early 13th century, Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Europe. By the the time the Ottomans took Constantinople the Empire consisted of the immediate environs around the city, a few islands in the Aegean, and the Peloponnesus in southern Greece.

Le voyage de l’éléphant Abul Abbas en Méditerranée au IXe siècle : une histoire (...) Les mondes carolingiens, musulmans et byzantins peuvent être étudiés à partir des pérégrinations de l’éléphant que le calife Haroun Al-Rachid offre à Charlemagne en 802. Il s’agit d’un travail de B.Quennoy. Histoire 5e Thème 1 : Chrétientés et Islam, des mondes de contact Le voyage de l’éléphant Abul Abbas en Méditerranée au IXe siècle : une histoire connectée Galerie des Offices, Florence The Uffizi was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 for Cosimo I de'Medici to house the Granducal Magistratures of Tuscany. Over time, the top floor loggia became an exhibition of the dynastic collection of ancient sculpture, artwork and artifacts. The eastern wing of the building incorporated the ancient Florentine church of San Pier Scheraggio and the wing to the west connected with two existing buildings, the Mint and the Loggia dei Lanzi. Vasari conceived an architectural module to be repeated all along the building: a portico flanked by two pillars, with niches on the ground floor and three windows on the upper story.
