Art, Faith and the Ages of the Human

Art, Faith and the Ages of the Human

Currently closed for booking

Visual art and Christian tradition have both told profound stories about what it means to be an ageing human: faltering, flourishing and facing mortality. This course is an opportunity to explore works of art from the middle ages to the present from these perspectives. We will see how artists have responded to imperfect lives lived in passing time to find in it all meaning, beauty, humour and insight. 

Anyone with an interest in art and/or faith is very welcome.

The weekend is led by Deborah Lewer, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Glasgow.
