Passion and Pandemic: Seminar III

Passion and Pandemic: Seminar III

Date Time Location Price

The third in a specially-curated series of contemplative lunchtime seminars for Passiontide and Holy Week.

At each seminar, a different art historian and theologian will focus on pictures from the National Gallery’s collection and explore themes of salvation, frailty, isolation, and sickness.

In this next seminar, Dr Jennifer Sliwka and Professor Ben Quash (KCL) will introduce Andrea Mantegna’s Agony in the Garden. This 45 minute lunchtime seminar is designed as a meditation for Holy Week, and is part of an online series offered by the Abbey during the COVID-19 pandemic to inspire hope and reflection on the Passion of Christ.
