    IMAGING THE HOLY REFORMATION,
    COUNTER-REFORMATION, AND THE ARTS

    An illustrated lecture by Eamon Duffy, Emeritus Professor of the History of Christianity in the University of Cambridge

    The Reformation not only transformed the religious landscape of northern Europe: it also initiated a revolution in the visual and musical arts. While the Catholic Church remained committed to the transmission of gospel truth through the senses of sound, hearing, and touch, many Reformation communities believed that the primacy of God’s word as the sole means of divine self-revelation demanded a repudiation of the arts as legitimate vehicles of salvation: this talk explores some of the consequences.
