St. Norbert College to present God's Communities and Their Artists
Monday, Sept 30, at 7 p.m.
From St. Norbert College, September 17, 2013
by Stefanie Trinkl, email@example.com, 920-403-3089
The Rev. Andrew Ciferni, director of the Center for Norbertine Studies at St. Norbert, will present the lecture, which was originally written for and delivered at a symposium on Spirituality in Contemporary Art on October 18, 2011, (the Feast of St. Luke, patron of artists) in Florence, Italy. Fr. Ciferni's presentation will propose that the acquisition of art by religious communities is an expression of the charism of the religious community, especially when the art is commissioned by the community and is in dialogue with the artist.
Fr. Ciferni's examples will draw from a 12th century Norbertine Bible, a fresco attributed to Fra. Angelico in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence, Italy, a work commissioned by Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, Pa. and an illumination from the Collegeville Bible.
