Passion and Pandemic: Seminar IV

Passion and Pandemic: Seminar IV

Date Time Location Price

The culmination of 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 final seminar, Dr Greg Bryda (Barnard College, Columbia University) and Dr Rowan Williams (former Archbishop of Canterbury) will explore the Isenheim Altarpiece. This 45 minute lunchtime seminar is designed as a preparation for Easter, 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.

Registration closes at 4:00pm on Monday 29th March. After initial broadcast, all seminars in this series will be available to watch on the Abbey's YouTube channel.

You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
