Fra Angelico’s Guides to Meditation

One-day course exploring the Fra Angelico frescoes in the Convent of San Marco, Florence

Some of the frescoes considered may be found in communal areas of the convent, but emphasis will be on the individual frescoes found in each of the monks’ cells.

The frescoes were intended as guides in the meditative practice of the monks of San Marco, and the themes cover various aspects of events in the life of Christ. The paintings are noteworthy for their simplicity of expression, while providing their viewers with a profoundly meaningful focus for meditation.

£45, includes lunch and refreshments
