Art and Spirituality Annual Lecture: The Spirituality of Icons

Art and Spirituality Annual Lecture

Within the Eastern tradition of Christianity, the icon, or religious image, long has held a place of honor. Western Christianity, too, has its own traditions of using sacred images for prayer and worship. In this free virtual lecture, learn about what an icon is, how it is created in prayer, and how it can be used for liturgical, devotional, and catechetical uses.

The Pucker Family Fund, Pucker Gallery, Boston, is the sponsor of the annual Art and Spirituality speaker series that honors the Erie monastery’s late artist-in-residence Brother Thomas Bezanson and Erie Benedictine Sisters Joan Chittister and Maureen Tobin.
