FILIPA ARAòJO (CIEC/ UNIVERSITY OF COIMBRASEMINAR OF YOUNG SCIENTISTS Ð SCIENCE ACADEMY OFLISBON) 11 OCTOBER 2019  !  ABSTRACT !  Considering the enthusiastic reception of Antiquity in the Modern  Period, this proposaldiscusses how ars emblematica contributed to that phenomenon, since emblem bookstransferred and revised ancient models (such as hieroglyphic language and Classicalpoetry), creating a new type of cultural production. In 1531, Alciato printed the first versionof his Emblematum Liber, which soon became not only an editorial success, but alsoprovided inspiration for Arts. According to AlciatoÕs own words, his purpose was producingnew hieroglyphs, in order to enable a universal language of Òmute signsÓ, mostly takenfrom ancient authors. Some of these compositions imitate or translate epigrams displayedby the Anthologia Graeca and many reproduce mythological contents, but the ingeniousrelation between text and images changed their communicative potential. The triplexemblematic pattern (motto, picture, verse text) became widespread and the influence oflogo-iconic compositions extended over the whole of Europe from 16th to 18th centuries,including Portugal. This proposal will focus on the reception of classic myths in Lusitanianemblem books and plastic arts, taking AlciatoÕs model as reference, in order to shed a newlight on that mater.  Call for papers: 15 November 2019
