Apostle

An event to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Ivan Fedorov’s Acts and Epistles (Apostol) and the 440th anniversary of his Primer (Azbuka). Fedorov is usually regarded as the father of printing in Russia and Ukraine. Supported by SSEES, the Centre for  Eastern European Language-Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), UCL European Institute and UCL Centre for Early Modern Exchanges, the conference will challenge the narrow national views of Fedorov's heritage by offering a transnational approach to the history of early printing.

Gongora Map
Este tema tomará en cuenta los conocimientos de Sigüenza de la historia antigua mexicana, y, por consiguiente, su empleo de la de los reyes aztecas y la iconografía precolombina, presentándolas como modelos de conducta para los virreyes novohispanos. Este paso novedoso, para no decir atrevido, forma parte de su visión de la memoria e historia mexicanas, que fue la razón por la cual estudiosos extranjeros y novohispanos, desde Gemeli Carreri hasta Humboldt, lo tomaron como autoridad y apreciaron sus logros. Por eso sostengo que Sigüenza fue uno de los fundadores del estudio de las antigüedades americanas, no para reemplazarlas como parte del proyecto de evangelización sino para apreciarlas por su propio valor, considerándolas entre los orígenes de la patria criolla.
