Utterly Human: Art, Faith and Failure

6th April - 8th April 2018



Faith and doubt, folly and failure go together in the stories of Jesus’s disciples, both in any meaningful creative endeavor and in any real life. Using these perspectives, Deborah Lewer explores great and lesser works of visual art from the Middle Ages to the present day, seeing in art’s traitors, doubters, fools and bunglers where wisdom comes of folly, beauty of imperfection and of failure, grace.

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.

Residential prices start from £230, non-residential from £160. Discount rates for clergy and students apply.
