Baptism John the Baptist earns his name from his baptism of Christ on the banks of the River Jordan. This act marks the beginning of Christ's ministry, when he begins to travel, preach and perform miracles, and later becomes a key ritual in the entry of the faithful into the Church. In this episode art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash visit Salisbury Cathedral and the spectacular font designed by William Pye to discuss the significance and symbolism of baptism, before returning to the National Gallery to see Adam Elsheimer's, 'The Baptism of Christ', 1599 and the great Italian Renaissance masterpiece by Piero della Francesca, 'The Baptism of Christ', 1450s. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.
