Sunday 24 September
Folk High School

What’s wrong with this picture? A lecture in English by Cynthia Lumley PhD, Principal of Westfield House, Cambridge, MA in in Theology & Christianity and the Arts.

Prior to 1500, art was almost exclusively religious. During and after the Reformation, many religious images were destroyed physically; but perhaps the more lasting consequence was the ideological undermining of sacred art. Luther played a key role in halting iconoclasm and ultimately spoke positively of religious art in worship, using it extensively himself in his publications. This presentation will focus on the ways in which Luther’s theology challenged certain depictions in sacred art and how art was used by Luther to communicate the Gospel message.
