The Popes, Iberia, and the Conquest of Africa (1500-1600)

The Popes, Iberia, and the Conquest of Africa (1500-1600)

Speaker: Céline Dauverd (University of Colorado Boulder/ Italian Academy, Columbia University)

Respondent: Diane Bodart (Department of Art History and Archaeology, Columbia University)

Moderator: Pier Mattia Tommasino (Columbia University)

Céline Dauverd’s book project, All the Kings of the Mediterranean, The Role of the Renaissance Papacy in the North African Conquest 1430-1620, explores the Iberian conquest of North Africa (1450-1620) through the prism of seven Renaissance popes. Prof. Dauverd investigates how popes exploited their spiritual and temporal sway through soft power of rhetoric and authority, and through raw power of secular jurisdiction and alliance politics.

This event is part of the Italian and Mediterranean Colloquia, and is co- sponsored by the Italian Department and the European Institute at Columbia University
