Faith Taking Shape: Early Christianity and the Arts
Lecture by Thomas F. Noble
Given on September 6, 2008 at the University of Notre Dame
God told Moses not to make “graven images,” and although it would seem logical that Christianity would not have developed figural arts, around the year 300, writers began to build powerful arguments for and against the creation and display of Christian arts. Noble will explore how and why Christians learned to talk about art and what they actually said.
