Crown Them with Light: Glory in Medieval Symbolism

by

Katerina Kern

$3.00

Presented at the A Contemplation of Glory Conference 2021.

This talk will explore Medieval conceptions and representations of glory by closely considering three artefacts: a Cathedral, an illuminated manuscript, and a painting. In each, we will examine the symbolic representation of glory and attempt to understand the purpose of that expression. In doing so, we will see how our understanding of glory impacts our art, our communities, and ultimately, our cosmology.
