If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Mary Newbould.

This talk presents new research on Sandro Botticelli’s late fifteenth-century illustrations of Dante’s Paradiso. I interrogate the status of the illustrations with respect to the text and reflect on the ways in which Botticelli sought to comment, visualise, or ‘remediate’ the visions of Dante’s Paradiso. I argue that Botticelli, like Dante, seeks to find new ways to involve the reader or viewer in the encounters that constitute his Paradiso.
