THE ARTS OF CHRISTIANITY 1/10 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.

Christian millennium, how much do most of us understand the visual imagery of the religious tradition by which we are surrounded? This first lecture takes an overview of the impact of the Church on every aspect of artistic creation, much of which still plays a part in the practice of Faith, as it has over generations.
