Erik Thunø

January - March 2004

Erik Thunø is assistant director of the Danish Academy in Rome and author of Relic and Image, Mediating the Sacred in Early Medieval Rome (L’Erma di Bretschneider, 2002). Thunø's present work explores the dynamics between late-medieval miracle-working images and their sanctuaries during the Italian Renaissance. While at the Clark, he will focus on the theoretical elements of his study, especially the typology, the anthropological theories, and the historiographical issues surrounding the study of Renaissance cult images.
