Prophetism and the New World in Early Modern History I

Posted By Marco Volpato, Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Organizers: Marco Volpato and Victor Tiribás

Deadline: 1 June 2017

This panel consists of a series of two sessions concerning the topic of the New World and prophetism in the 16th and 17th centuries. The aim of these sessions is to explore the evolution of the prophetic discourse in the Early Modern period. Emphasis shall also be placed on prophetism as a key element in dealing with the difficulties of fitting the New World into biblical history, linking Christianity and Judaism, millenarianism and messianism. Papers that draw on original sources with an interdisciplinary approach are welcome. For instance, inquisitorial trials, manuscripts and printed documents which circulated in Europe and in the colonies, iconographic materials and theological texts.

The first panel invites papers to discuss aspects of the prophetic discourses on the New World formulated in the 16th century Europe, colonial Indies and Iberian/Mediterranean environment (between Christians, Jews, Moriscos and New Christians).

Papers may focus on (but are not limited to) the following aspects:

  • prophetism and the interpretation of the discovery of the New World;
  • the role of the Indies in the construction of a Providential history;
  • prophetism as a link between the New and the Old World;
  • prophetic and eschatological interpretations of the American Indians and their origins;
  • prophetism in theological-political thoughts and systems, related to concepts like translatio ecclesiae and the dialectics of destruction and renovation;
  • prophetism and global empires.

Prophetism and the New World in Early Modern History II

Posted By Marco Volpato, Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Organizers: Marco Volpato and Victor Tiribás

Deadline: 1 June 2017

This panel consists of a series of two sessions concerning the topic of the New World and prophetism in the 16th and 17th centuries. The aim of these sessions is to explore the evolution of the prophetic discourse in the Early Modern period. Emphasis shall also be placed on prophetism as a key element in dealing with the difficulties of fitting the New World into biblical history, linking Christianity and Judaismmillenarianism and messianism. Papers that draw on original sources with an interdisciplinary approach are welcome. For instance, inquisitorial trials, manuscripts and printed documents which circulated in Europe and in the colonies, iconographic materials and theological texts.

The second panel invites papers to discuss the consolidation and the effects of the 16th century on the 17th century prophetism, reflecting on its influence on the eschatological meaning of the Diasporas (of Jews, New Christians and Moriscos). For instance, the cases of Pernambuco and Suriname seen as “Colonial Jerusalem”; the re-elaboration of theories on the origins of the American Indians or the rise of innovative exegetical interpretations; the readmission of Jews in Cromwell’s England, led by Menasseh ben Israel; the identification of Portugal as the Fifth Empire by António Vieira and the possibility of making an history of the future”; the emergence of false prophets who were put to trial (or not) by the Inquisition.
