Spirituality and Art - a pilgrimage to Florence
Friday 25th November 2011
From 10-16 October 2012, Revd Jane Eastell, Diocesan Adviser in Spirituality, will lead a pilgrimage to Florence on the theme Spirituality and Art - the divine art of Fra Angelico.
A chance to see and reflect on, the frescoes and paintings of the Dominican, Fra Angelico of the fifteenth century.
"In medieval thought, the noblest aim of painting was the portrayal of individual events in the life of Christ, leading one to meditate on the divine mysteries", says Jane. "Fra Angelico’s frescoes at San Marco, Florence are highly regarded examples. Vasari, a sixteenth century Italian painter and historian, described Angelico as a ‘truly Angelic father’, but there is much more to him than that!" she adds.
This pilgrimage is open not only to people in Bath & Wells but also those from surrounding dioceses.
