The Annunciation as Portrayed in Art

  • Course Dates: Fri 11 March 2016, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This year we see a rare occurrence: the Feast Day of the Annunciation falls on the same day as Good Friday.

This convergence can lead us to reflect on the relationship between the two dates and events in the Christian year.

In this course, we shall explore portrayals of the annunciation in art through the ages. We shall seek out the theological implications suggested by the artists (at times in collaboration with their patrons) by looking carefully at the settings and details that were chosen for illustrating the event.

The question will be addressed as to how it was intended that viewers should understand the event of the annunciation and its theological significance in the context of their faith.
