It will take place on 23 October, in French, from 16:30 to 18:30 CET Brussels
This is the first in a series of web seminars that will be held on four dates, bringing together a large number of experts on the life of the emperor to discuss issues related to his coronation.
An essential web seminar to learn about the coronation of Emperor Charles V that took place in Aachen on 23 October 1521. It will feature presentations and reflections by specialist historians of the time. Special attention will also be paid to the differences between the official discourse, as it appears in particular in the imperial propaganda and in Chancellor Gattinara’s programme for a world empire, at a time when the colonial conquests showed the beginning of the process of globalisation, and the real policy that was followed thereafter.
Here is the agenda that will be developed on Friday 23 October, in French, from 16:30 to 18:30 CET Brussels.
- Introduction: Alain Servantie, Coordinator of the Scientific Committee of the European Cooperation Network of Routes by Carlos V / Miguel Ángel Martin Ramos, President of the Council of the European Cooperation Network of Routes by Carlos V/ Stefano Dominioni, Director of the Institute of Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. From the Empire to Europe
- Roel Jacobs, Historical Advisor to the City of Brussels: «1520- The political programme of Charles V, from the imperial dream to the nightmare of European imbalance».
- Juan-Carlos d’Amico, University of Caen: «Symbolic and political aspects of the three coronations of Charles V».
