"Ageless Females in the Eternal City: Women in the Old Testament"
Web Lecture on February 10th at 3pm ET
with Antje Wolf
Come and Discover:
What Roman art shows us about women of the Bible? It is a consistent and beautiful part of the art in the Eternal City.
In this lecture we are going to explore “female” aspects of Michelangelo’s art in the Sistine Chapel and elsewhere and admire parts of Raphael’s Bible in the Vatican Loggia.
We will remember, reevoke, and revisit... the heroic stories of Rachel and Leah, Deborah and Jael, Judith, Esther and Susanna through the churches and museums which carry on this majestic legacy.
The lecture has been recorded for you!
