Religious Art (Forum for Philosophy)
9 December 2020, 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
The relationship between religion and art is ancient and complex, varying across religious traditions and cultures. In this event, we consider how these traditions of religious art differ and what role art plays in religion today. How should we display religious art? Might art be a way of opening interfaith dialogue? And has art itself become a kind of religion?
