Spring Event

Picturing the Cross

by

Dr Jennifer O'Reilly

on

Saturday 6th February, 2016

Dr O'Reilly will give a lecture which illustrates some of the major changes in representing the Cross in the visual arts during the period from Late Antiquity to the Reformation, and highlights the kinds of theological and devotional interests which particular traditions and images reflected or promoted.


Dr. O'Reilly played a key role in establishing the BA programme in the history of art in UCC and has, since 2001, taught and co-ordinated modules on Medieval art for the new subject area. In 2005 she was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, while in 2007 she was enrolled as a member of the Royal Irish Academy in acknowledgement of her work in the field of Insular Studies.
