|Unit(s): 3.0||Level(s): Graduate||Term(s): Winter||Offered?: Yes|
An examination of the interpretation of Scripture, the development of doctrine, and visual representation from the Patristic Period to the Modern. In what ways and to what extent can it be said that the incarnation affected Christian conceptions of the artistic representation of the divine? Why have some in the Christian tradition favoured the use of images in worship, while others have resolutely rejected the practice?
