Discover Auburn Lecture Series Book Talk

The Badia of Florence:  Art and Observance in a Renaissance Monastery

Anne Leader, Ph.D.

Date and Time:  Thursday, February 4 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

Reception and book signing to follow!

In The Badia of Florence:  Art and Observance in a Renaissance Monastery, Anne Leader explores the relatively unknown fresco cycle that adorns the second story of the main cloister at the Florentine Badia, an ancient, powerful, and wealthy Benedictine monastery that underwent a thorough institutional reform in the early fifteenth century.  Despite their important stylistic, inspirational, and symbolic features, the Badia frescoes remain unfamiliar to scholars and tourists alike.  Leader's book introduces the murals to a wider audience through exploration of how they formed a crucial part of the Badia's reform program.

Anne Leader holds a Ph.D. in Art History and Archaeology from the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University.  She is currently researching tomb monuments and burial practices in Renaissance Florence.   She edits IASblog for the Italian Art Society.

Sponsored by:  Auburn University Libraries.

In addition to the RBD Book Shift & Construction Updates Link  described in the January 8 update of What's New, there is now a Mell Street Classroom construction project link located in the scrolling yellow banner near the top of the Auburn University Libraries homepage .  This latter link provides maps, questions and answers, and book shifting updates.

This is a major construction project and it will extend physically into the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.   Consequently, there has been some significant shifting of the book collections.

Library patrons are also reminded that the Mell Street entrance to the Ralph Brown Draughon Library will be closed for construction for the duration of the Mell Classroom project.

The First Floor Parking Deck entrance will be the main library entrance and exit until the project's completion in August 2017.
