2016 Palmer Lecture

2016 Palmer Lecture

From the dawn of Christianity, some form of art has often communicated that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Art continues to not only represent but also shape our understanding of community, revelation, spirituality, conversion, and worship. This dialogical relationship between art and theology points the way to an integration of spirituality, art, and liturgy, a synthesis we see in sacred images.

Explore this intersection with Fr. Eduardo Fernández at the free 39th annual Alfred S. Palmer Lecture, hosted by Seattle Pacific University's School of Theology and Seattle Pacific Seminary. Dr. Laura Lasworth, SPU art professor, will be the respondent.
