An Idea and Its Icons

on BBC Radio 3

Two talks on theology and iconography in the Middle Ages by Geoffrey Webb
1: Christ in Majesty
The way in which Christ is represented in earlier medieval art is, naturally, profoundly affected by the society of the time. Particularly strong are the influences of the monastic 'anti-world' and the absolute power of the feudal lord. Yet all the time the figure of Christ works through its icons and their social setting to change both.
Second broadcast
