NOTE: the correct time for this event is 12:15 p.m. and not 2 p.m. as listed in the brochure

Bring your light lunch to this richly illustrated talk, in which Gary Vikan will explore the emergence of the 'canonical' face of Christ in the early medieval period. For nearly 1,500 years, illustrators of the story of Jesus of all backgrounds — from Byzantine mosaics to Hollywood filmmakers — have remained true to this face.

Dr. Vikan will explore how that face was and is used in Orthodox devotion, and how, over the centuries, it was subtly adapted theologically and stylistically to suit the various Christian nations of the world.

Gary Vikan is the director of the Walters Art Museum.
