Today we encounter most Christian art in art galleries rather than churches, but how was it originally seen and used? We will study medieval art, Renaissance masterpieces and beyond. Learn to recognise devotional art, educational religious narratives and religious paintings hiding secular agendas. Explore iconoclasm – the destruction of religious images – and discuss Christian art today.
