We are so pleased that we once again have received a grant from the NH Humanities Council for 2015’s 1 Book 1 Valley project. The NHHC is our major contributor, without support from organizations like NHHC and our valley’s loyal readers, this project wouldn’t be in its 10th year!
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.
