Plenarium: All the Relics of the Passion and the Saints, Material and Devotion
Dr. Cynthia Hahn, Distinguished Professor of Art History & Medieval Studies, Hunter College & Graduate Center City University of New York
Cynthia is an internationally renowned scholar of medieval art in general and the art of the cult of the saints in particular. The topic of the lecture is Cynthia’s newest research on relics of the Passion of Christ. You may recall that she was last at KU in 2014 as the art history department’s Franklin D. Murphy Lecturer. Those talks were published as Cynthia Hahn, Passion Relics and the Medieval Imagination: Art, Architecture, and Society (University of California Press, 2020).
