Revolutionary Ceremonies and Visual Culture during the Neapolitan Revolt (1647-1648)

Alain Hugon

Abstract

During the Neapolitan Revolt (1647–1648) insurgents organized various ceremonies to celebrate their rebellion and the newly founded Neapolitan Republic. Images (engraving, sculpture, painting, drawing) played an important but complex ceremonial role. In the course of the revolution, rites and ceremonies were modified and sometimes new rules and rituals completely replaced old ones. This chapter explores the extent to which this also entailed a change in the use of imagery. In doing so, it sheds light on the role of iconography in times of rebellion.
