Neoplatonism and the Arts

Chairs: Liana De Girolami Cheney ( and John Hendrix (

This session aims to show the cultural influence of Neoplatonic ideas - of beauty, hypostases of being, and workings of phantasia and nous, for example, as they are represented in the visual arts-architecture, painting and sculpture and drawing.  The presences of Neoplatonic structures in the arts reveal emblematic, theological and social traditions.
