Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now
June 12-24, 2016
Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now addresses a fundamental dilemma of Christianity: how to represent God's Son. This is particularly important in the twenty-first century. Issues of race, gender, and sexuality animate debates in church, state, and society. Considerations of bodies and body images dominate personal lives. And new technologies allow for the creation and distribution of images as never before. How we "see" Jesus Christ plays a vital role in how we see ourselves, our communities, our churches, our nations, and our societies.
