Result of a Franco-Russian project (CNRS – Russian Academy of Sciences), this publication presents the latest advances of recent research on the Vikings in a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective across Eastern Europe. It proposes a reflection on the dynamics of cultural exchanges analysed as a process of interactions that have traversed ethnic or social groups, countries, religious beliefs and practices, generations, genders. Questions concerning the specificities of these processes and the reciprocal transformations of Scandinavian settlements and local societies (Frankish, Anglo-Saxon, Slavic, Finnish) are posed. A large part is devoted to the actors involved in these changes (elites, merchants, ecclesiastics, artisans, women, skalds, historiographers...), and the places or areas where they took place. This publication thus participates to the broader reflection on the notions discussed concerning acculturation, cultural transfers and the “middle ground” whose heuristic interest goes far beyond the phenomenon of Scandinavian expansion during the Viking era
The article discusses the Composizione del mondo, the first cosmological encyclopedia in tuscanian vernacular, by Restoro d’Arezzo, ca. 1280. It is the only Restoro’s text surviving, but from it we know that he was also a practicing painter, probably a jeweler. Some passages, for instance, descriptions of painted and carved vases and of sarcophagi, show his acute esthetic attitude, prove the existence of a circle of amateurs of pagan antiquities. A textual analysis of these crucial passages allows to review some ideas, present in human sciences, about the birth of the modern, post-Renaissance, notion of the Art.

This article presents the ideological biography of the Kiev-based scientist, writer and essayist Viktor Petrov (1894—1969) and attempts a reconstruction of the continuity and interconnections of his scientific and artistic views in the 1920s and 1940s. At the center of his concern is the problem of history as a series of epochs that succeed one another outside of any progress, as well as the problems around the reconstruction of a primeval ideology of lineage (with reference to Potebnya and Dmitri Chizhevsky). Petrov’s work is particularly important and attractive in its combination of the analytic, artistic and historiosophical approaches, his biographical stylization and love for masks, as well as his strategies of intellectual survival in a post-avant-garde ideological situation.
This article analyses the processes concerned with evolution and functioning of the image of «Archer/Centaur» in the 1 st millennium BC. This image should not be perceived as a common citation from the antique figurative context since, in the West-Asiatic art, the image of Sagittarius had received its visual form still earlier. In denotation of the Sagittarius constellation in Mesopotamia, no abstract symbol is used but exclusively the proper name of Pabilsag. In visual art, Pabilsag is represented by the image of Centaur The Archer known in the art of Mesopotamia since the Kassite and middle Assyrian times. Comparative analysis of petroglyphs of Zhaltyrak-Tash, the representations on the swords from Kelermes Kurgan № 1 and those from the Melgunov barrow helps us much to understand the specifics of formation of the image of Pabilsag (Sagittarius). Keywords: Sagittarius, Centaur, Catasterismi, Mesopotamian art of the 1st millennium BC, art of Eurasian nomads of the 1st millennium BC, Kelermes barrow No 1, Melgunov barrow, Zhaltyrak-Tash.
