Baroque Festivals between the sacred and the profane: Europe and the Atlantic

October 17th to 19th, 2019 | Palácio do Correio-Mor | Loures
This conference will adress the cross-disciplinary and plural studies on Baroque festivals in its several dimensions. The performative process of the festivals show codes and rituals that structure baptisms, royal weddings, embassies, royal entries, canonizations, beatifications and other solemnities within the civil and religious frames. With this broad scope this congress aims to adress significant areas of knowledge as art, literature and music. The birth and definition of models, the agents and leading subjects as the territorial impact will be explored. Finally it encompasses the studies related to the 17th and 18th centuries as well as contemporary visions of the baroque festivals concept.
