Christ’s Earliest Images: Understanding Imagery and Interpretation in a Time of Change @ Winebrenner Theological Seminary
Sep 29 @ 7:30 pm

Adam Levine, the Toledo Museum of Art’s associate director and associate curator of ancient art, will speak about early visual depictions of Christ as part of the University of Findlay’s 2017/2018 DeBow and Catherine Freed Contemporary Lecture Series.

Levine’s lecture, titled “Christ’s Earliest Images: Understanding Imagery and Interpretation in a Time of Change,” will take place Sept. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary.

Levine will show examples of the earliest images of Christ, and discuss how they evolved over centuries. He will point out how Christ’s images reflect the beliefs and understandings of the people that created them. Insights into how Christ’s images can be interpreted historically will be applied more broadly to understanding how interpretation itself operates. Viewed in this way, understanding Christ’s historical image becomes a lens for understanding how we can more successfully interact with each other today.

Before joining the Toledo Museum of Art, Levine had worked in the Greek and Roman Department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He holds master’s and doctoral degrees in art history from the University of Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and has published on topics ranging from the museum business model to the aesthetics of Byzantine icons. He is currently completing a monograph version of his dissertation, “The Image of Christ in Late Antiquity: A Case Study in Religious Interaction.”

This event and all others offered by the Freed Contemporary Lecture Series are free and open to the public.
