How can medieval art explain Jerusalem’s centrality in the world faiths of Christianity and Islam? This book delves into that topic by examining how Jerusalem was creatively represented and reimagined in several intriguing Christian and Islamic artworks in the later Middle Ages (c. 1187 to 1356).
The book considers how European Catholic crusaders, Eastern Christian sects, and diverse Muslim factions displayed Jerusalem’s architecture to express their interpretation of the holy city’s sanctity and influence. These examples demonstrate how artworks can reflect Jerusalem’s importance to these faiths in the past and illuminate our understanding of its status into the modern era.
Théorie littéraire et fragilité du divers
L’infini culturel est autour de nous, mais, comme l’horizon, il tend à fuir sous nos yeux. Il est sur les murs investis par le street art ; ou dans les toiles d’araignée auxquelles Tomás Saraceno a rendu hommage ; ou dans les timbres-poste qui, comme savaient Walter Benjamin et Italo Calvino, sont des fenêtres ouvertes sur le monde.
Quelle que soient ses manifestations, l’infini nous engage à considérer l’extraordinaire diversité de la planète.
Face à lui, que faire, en littérature ?
Rester humble, par exemple, et formuler des hypothèses adéquates. Tenter de déjouer les asymétries qui empêchent les uns et les autres de s’exprimer partout dans de bonnes conditions. Revoir les fondements de la world literature et se mettre en résonance avec une culture authentiquement planétaire.

Cultural infinity surrounds us; but, just like the horizon, it tends to run away right in front of our eyes. It might appear on walls full of street art; in the spider webs deeply esteemed by Tomás Saraceno; in postage stamps which, as Walter Benjamin and Italo Calvino acknowledged, are open windows on the world.
Whatever its manifestations, the infinite dares us to consider the extraordinary diversity of the planet. In front of such a challenge, what can we do with literature?
Stay humble, for example, and formulate adequate hypotheses. Try to reduce the asymmetries that prevent us from expressing ourselves everywhere in good conditions. Build the foundations of world literature and resonate with an authentically global culture.

Arts, Creativities, and Learning Environments in Global Perspectives aims at investigating the encounters that can occur between the arts and creativities in various learning environments and cultural contexts. The series intends to explore the multiplicity of these approaches by presenting perspectives from diverse learning environments, not solely formal institutions like schools, universities, academies, and colleges, but also non-formal ones (cultural institutions, libraries, museums, theatres, orchestras, archives, organisations, and work-places) or informal ones (play and games, community projects, amateur art, and clubs). This means that a pluralistic view on the artS – indeed, plural – is being embraced by including artistic expressions from all genres and artistic encounters at all levels, including the arts-based, artist-led, arts-inspired, arts-integrated. We encourage contributions from all over the world, in order to challenge a well-established Western-centred understanding of creativity and art (singular). This series will strongly support global perspectives, cross-cultural studies, critical theories, creative dissemination and a broader re-framing of the role of the arts for learning and for society.
