Examine death in the Middle Ages, moving from body to spirit in this fascinating presentation by Dr Molly Duggins, now available as an online lecture.
Originally scheduled as part of our highly regarded Art Appreciation lecture series Love, sex and death: The constant companions of art, this lecture has been made available for you to enjoy online from the comfort of your home.
In this lecture, Molly examines icons of Western medieval art in relation to the social, theological and cultural issues involved in death and dying in the Middle Ages. Particular emphasis is placed on the materiality of death – and its sanctification – through an exploration of the cult of relics in medieval liturgy and pilgrimage.
Book now until Friday 8 October for instant online access. Lectures will be available for viewing online at your own pace until Sunday 10 October (access instructions will be provided upon booking).
