Symposium: Envisioning the Eucharist—Transcending the Literal in Medieval and Byzantine Art

This daylong symposium will examine the assertion that Medieval and Byzantine art functioned not as a mere supplement to or reduction of advanced theological concepts, but as theology in its own right.

Featured will be new scholarship that explores how developing Eucharistic doctrine was translated—and transformed—visually. Special consideration will be given to how artists envisioned the Eucharist theologically and transcended the literal representation of the Last Supper to convey other dimensions of the Eucharistic mystery.
