Join us on Sunday, September 22 at 2 pm at the Lutheran Church of the Nativity for Chartres Cathedral: Philosophy and Theology as Art, a NH Humanities Council program presented by Ty Perry.

Perry will lead a discovery tour of the philosophical and theological thought behind cathedral art, in particular, stained glass windows and sculpture. Avoiding the normal art historical approach (the development of styles over time) and avoiding critical evaluations of artistic style or merit, this is an inquiry into the “why” of windows and sculpture of medieval cathedrals, a search for the meaning, sometimes on the surface, sometimes hidden.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments, too.
