In 1823 Ferdinand Olivier published a groundbreaking series of lithographs titled Seven Places in Salzburg and Berchtesgaden, Arranged According to the Seven Days of the Week, United by Two Allegorical Plates. This lecture explores his reflections on the nature of looking and the meaning of landscape that reaches from the aesthetic to the religious, from the construction of selfhood to the affirmation of community, and finally from isolated practice to the celebration of ritual.
