The Mary Jaharis Center is pleased to announce our second lecture of 2021–2022: The Sound of the Lectionary: Chant, Architecture, and Salvation in Byzantium. In this lecture, Roland Betancourt, University of California, Irvine, considers the ways in which notions of salvation were sonically articulated in the Divine Liturgy during the Middle Byzantine period. Tracing the Gospel lectionary from text to illustration to recitation, Professor Betancourt explores how Byzantine artists produced a unified experience that took into consideration not only the text of the Gospel, but also how it would appear to the reader and his audience within the context of the Divine Liturgy.
