Art Showcase: Doors of Paradise

  • Date: Sunday, September 25, 2022
  • Time: 11:00am1:30pm EDT
  • Location: in Margaret Jewett Hall

See ten oil paint panels as one narrative, based on the bas-relief sculpture of Ghiberti, circa 1450. Those doors open to the San Giovanni Duomo baptistry in Florence, Italy. First Church member Henry Gates revives Christian art history to envision Biblical narrative in Genesis to Kings, exploring family and tribal dramas that may speak to our time and faith. We can imagine our matters of ethics—love, power and justice—that were at issue three thousand years ago.
