Imaging Transcendence: From the Catacombs to the Gothic Cathedral

  • Course Dates: Tue 15 October 2019, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Western Christianity developed not only through the written word but by the story of Christ, the saints and central Christian beliefs depicted through the various media of visual art and architecture.

This study day offers an illustrated introduction to how Christian faith found expression in the early Christian Roman catacombs, the Ravenna mosaics, in medieval Irish illuminated manuscripts and in the Gothic Cathedral.
