Seminar 6:
Enhancing Bible-Reading
Through Images

A picture may be worth 1000 words, but how do artists go about visualizing the words of Scripture? Moving from the tentative, compressed, Early Christian symbols to the complex and vast cycles of late mediaeval and Renaissance art, we will explore the ways in which images can accompany, parallel, and dialogue with words in ways which can enrich our responses to the scriptural teaching.

Date Thursday 20 July, 2017
Time 7.30 – 9.30 pm
Venue St Peter's Hall, Eastern Hill
Cost $15 (concession: $12)
