Honors Seminar

This Spring 2015, students in the University Honors Program are researching key works in the exhibit as part of a new interdisciplinary course on Mary. Art history majors and non-majors will be studying the art and iconography of Mary through two special courses: one an in-depth analysis of paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings devoted Mary from the Byzantine period through the Nineteenth Century in the National Gallery of Art’s permanent collection and the National Museum of Women in the Art’s exhibition; the other course is tracing the development of Mary’s cult in the context of heroic, virtuous, and holy women from Mary’s lifetime to the modern day in relation to the religious, political, and social forces that surrounded Mary’s recognition as both a potent intercessor and as a focal subject in Christian art.
