“Miracles in Miniature: The Art of the Master of Claude de France” opens at the Morgan Library on May 30th.

MAMA (the Mid-America Medieval Association) has opened their call for papers for the 2015 conference, which will be held at the University of Missouri-Kansas City on February 28th, 2015.  The theme this year is “Collectivity and Exchange.”  Abstract deadline: December 1st, 2014.

The call for Leeds 2015 is also out. The deadline for paper proposals is August 31, and for session proposals, September 30.


Michael T. Davis reviews Robert Bork’s The Geometry of Creation: Architectural Drawing and the Dynamics of Gothic Design (Farnham, UK, and Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2011) in the latest Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians.

It won’t replace seeing the amazing show, but Medieval Treasures of Hildesheim (Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2013) is worth purchasing.

Just out at Ashgate: Martin Bressani’s Architecture and the Historical Imagination: Eugène-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, 1814–1879 Other recent Ashgate titles include Architecture and Pilgrimage, 1000-1500: Southern Europe and Beyond.
