Event description

Presented by St James’ Institute Director Christopher Waterhouse

Artworks depicting Christ are housed in many of the world’s leading galleries and private collections. The most expensive painting ever sold was Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of Christ, Saviour of the World (Salvator Mundi, sold in 2017 for US $450.3 million). Does it matter that very few of these paintings give us a true sense of what Jesus might have actually looked like? How does art help us to consider Jesus Christ as shepherd, as the light of the world, as teacher, as friend, as Son of God, as Saviour of the World?
