Rigorous and richly textured, this course is a treasure for those with an eye for art and a passion for unraveling biblical allusions.

Revisit familiar scenes from the Gospels with Oxford-educated New Testament scholar Prof. Ian Boxall (D.Phil.) in Interpreting the Gospels Throughout History. Poised and highly perceptive, Prof. Boxall commands your attention through the caliber of his analysis – especially of Old and New Testament subjects in visual art. Regardless of your familiarity with either the Bible or the history of art, this course teems with gems of insight for you to scoop up and add to your collection.

In 12 lectures, Interpreting the Gospels Throughout History brings you up to speed on the literary theory known as “reception history” – a recent development in biblical scholarship that studies the ways in which different cultures and communities over time have read, understood, and appropriated biblical texts in a variety of media. Prof. Boxall surveys a wide range of interpretations of the Gospels for your consideration: from paintings, frescoes, icons, and hymns  to poems, apocryphal texts, and films. As you sift through levels of symbolism and historical parallel, you will come away with a fuller appreciation for the potential of art to augment and re-energize the legends it visualizes.

Quiet, intelligent, and deftly taught, Interpreting the Gospels Throughout History is the echo of a pensive walk through an empty cathedral or museum.
