Objets et insignes du pouvoir

Colloque international, 1er-3 décembre 2005, château de Versailles
Objects and symbols of power. International symposium, 1-3 December 2005, château de Versailles

The representation of power, whether political or religious, is materialized by objects, such as chairs, clothing and attributes. Drawing on significant examples from great civilizations past and present, this study endeavours to identify these objects’ origin, meaning and use.

This symposium was organized in collaboration with the Institut des Images.

See the complete programme of the symposium.

This symposium is related to the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles' research programme Pouvoir et Histoire en Europe du XVe siècle au XVIIIe siècle : textes, images et légitimation politique (2007-2010).
