"The Silent Knight -
St Joseph in Art"
Past Live Lecture on December 20th 2021 with Liz Lev
Come and Discover:
Images of St Joseph which are ubiquitous in the modern Catholic devotional landscape with his statues and figurines standing sentinel in every church and creche, but this was not always the case.
The husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus spent the first centuries of Christian art as a great absentee, unaccounted for in visual representations of Christ’s birth and infancy.
The lecture lasts 1 hour with 20 minutes of Q&A at the end!
