A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND: ST. JOSEPH IN ART
March 27, 2021
From model for the papacy, to symbol of marriage and fatherhood, to guide for a good death and advocate for the worker, St Joseph's many guises have made him one of the Church's greatest spiritual treasures. Following Pope Francis' dedication of 2021 to St. Joseph, this talk will look at Giotto, Raphael, Murillo and others as we uncover the many faces of this quiet saint with US art historian Elizabeth Lev based in Rome.
This event is co-presented with the Lumen Christi Institute.
Our co-sponsors include: the New England Chapter of the Patrons of the Arts Vatican Museums, the Collegium Institute's Ars Vivendi Arts Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania, the Saint Benedict Institute at Hope College (MI), the St. Paul's Catholic University Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the St. Lawrence Institute for Faith and Culture at the University of Kansas, the Nova Forum and the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at the University of Southern California.
