Christian Themes in Art: Jesus in Art

Wednesday, 17 November 2010

Overview

 Early Christian carvings depict Jesus as a beardless Roman youth.  Yet the image with which we are familiar is very different.  This lecture will explore the dominant imagery associated with Jesus in different ages and cultures.

This is a part of the 2010/2011 series of Divinity lectures by Lord Harries. For other lectures in this series, please follow this link: Religion and Art
