ROME AND EARLY CHRISTIANITY THEME OF ART LECTURE

 

The University of Lincoln history of art lectures continue this Thursday at the Usher Gallery in Lincoln.

 

The theme of this week’s lecture will be Rome and the influence of early Christianity.

 

Presented by Dr John Lord, the talk will take place between 12.30pm and 1.30pm at the Usher Gallery on Lindum Road.

 

The lecture is the fourth in the ‘Visual Arts: Antiquity to circa 1600’ series of lectures which will continue until December.

 

Although primarily for the degree students from the Lincoln School of Art and Design, the lectures are open to members of the public who are very welcome to attend free of charge.

 

“The interesting aspect of these lectures is that they will include relevant exhibits from collections at the Usher Gallery and the City and County Museum,” said Ian Waites, programme leader for the History of Art and Design course. “This means that real artefacts from the periods covered can be seen.”

 

Next Thursday’s lecture will discuss the Romanesque and the Celtic.
