Art and the Theological Imagination

Art and the Theological Imagination

CALL - Summer Featured Course

Presented by the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, Berkeley CA

How can visual art help us think deeper about theology? Dive more deeply into theology beyond words and texts. Using images from Latin American colonial art, this class explores a variety of theological topics ranging from the Trinity, to the Virgin Mary, and to the Body of Christ. How do such images, speaking from their cultural time and place, also speak to theology and practice of Christians today? More than just looking at images, “Art and the Theological Imagination” also discusses what possibilities exist by expanding one’s theological imagination.

Co-taught by the Most Rev. Frank T. Griswold, Former Presiding Bishop and Primate for the Episcopal Church, Dr. Mark Jordan, Professor at Harvard Divinity School, Dr. Kathryn Tanner, Professor at Yale Divinity School, and Ms. Jackie Winter, with Anglican Theological Review.
