A Contemplative Waiting: The Art of Faith

Elizabeth Foy

For centuries, art was one of the principal ways people learnt about Christianity, Bible stories, doctrine and the practice of prayer. Most of us now experience it in the very different setting of public museums and art galleries. Can it once again form a part of our spiritual learning and life?

Details of the meeting point will be sent out with bookings £15 per afternoon
(bursaries are available)

In this afternoon in the National Gallery, we will look at some masterpieces of Christian art and consider how looking at particular artists’ visions might challenge or refresh our sense of the familiar. We’ll also consider how looking at paintings might play a part in our devotional and prayer life.

Elizabeth Foy is Head of Adult Learning at St Paul’s Cathedral. An art historian by training, she worked for many years in museums and galleries in London before joining St Paul’s Cathedral.
