THE ARTS OF CHRISTIANITY 2/10 Lectures may be taken individually

Founded in 1994, THE COURSE offers art history lectures, opera and literature courses, guided museum visits and London walks.

In this series of 10 lectures, Nicole Mezey will examine how no single theme has so preoccupied the western artist as has Christianity. It is the only one of the world’s great monotheistic faiths to allow, indeed to encourage, representation, and the history, narratives and practice of the Faith are richly reflected in its art. Cherubim and chasubles, Passion and pilgrimages, Samson and St. Lucy - this course explores a range of Christian themes, some of the devotional and other forms in which they were expressed, and the experiences and ideas which inspired them.

From Genesis through the books of the prophets, the Old Testament tells of the birth of the world and explores the origins of the greatest moral and experiential codes. It also tells rich and wonderful stories which artists delight in retelling and embellishing.
