Art and Theology
Sunday 26th to Wednesday 29th March 2017
‘Let the glory through’: an exploration of sacred art and spaces for worship.
This short course is designed to give participants the opportunity to both engage with Christian art and to reflect through class presentations and discussion how art is perceived. Each day will balance theoretical input with visits to see art in churches, galleries, and chapels in Oxford. We will examine the contexts in which Christian art is viewed, suggest ways of how we may reflect theologically on contemporary art, and look at the place of art in churches within its architectural and liturgical context.
The course will be led by Art and Christianity Enquiry
(ACE) trustees and colleauges:
Christopher Irvine, Alison Milbank, Sophie Hacker, Stephen Stavrou and Laura Moffatt.
