JSTB Lecture Series Part One: the Art of Science & Icons

Friday, February 26th 2016, 12:40pm


Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University is hosting a series of three webinars on the subject of art, religion and science, which is sponsored by a generous grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). 

The first installment, the Art and Science of Icons, will be a conversation with author and iconographer Aidan Hart, a member of the Greek Orthodox Church living in Britain.  He has been a full-time icon painter and carver for 25 years and has works in monasteries and cathedrals in more than 20 countries of the world.  His aim is to make liturgical art that manifests the world transfigured in Christ. Hart will be discussing the art and science of the Byzantine icon tradition in the modern world at the Jesuit School of Theology next Friday, the 26th of February, in the Manresa lounge.

You can read more about Hart's publications, accolades, and commissions here.
