Morphogrammata. The Lettered Art of Optatian. Figuring cultural transformations in the age Constanti


International workshop supported by the Internationales Kolleg Morphomata (Universitaet zu Koeln) and the Department of Classics, King’s College London. This three-day workshop explores one of antiquity’s most fascinating (and most maligned) artists: Publilius Optatianus Porfyrius. ‘Optatian’ is hardly a household name among classicists and historians. But Optatian’s picture-poems uniquely figure the cultural dynamics of the early fourth century AD. To have any hope of understanding Optatian’s highly lettered artefacts, a range of critical perspectives is required. The Cologne workshop consequently aims to stimulate a new sort of interdisciplinary dialogue, bringing together historical, literary, philosophical, art historical and theological viewpoints to assess Optatian’s poetics.
