25julAll Day27Seeing With Unveiled Faces: Early Christian Iconography and the Interpretation of Scripture

Event Details

This course will focus on the theology of the ‘image of God’ as expressed in the Church’s reading of Scripture, her Christological vision, and her liturgical life. This class will give special attention to three main aspects. First, we will consider the scriptural narrative and the way images function as the very texture of God’s revelation to His people. Second, we will examine early Christian texts as testimonies to the way images have functioned in the Church’s proclamation of Christ crucified. Finally, we will explore the theological foundations of early Christian iconography and the aesthetic character of images as concrete expressions of the Church’s faith and her passionate confession of the Gospel.
