"Lord Harries, 'The Resurrection of Christ in Art'" (2011)

Gresham College lecture on You Tube uploaded on August 26th, 2011. This is the most difficult of all Christian themes to convey in visible form and the early church approached it with proper reticence. Whilst the Western Church developed an over-literalistic image, the Orthodox Church gave it a powerful symbolic rendering. The 20th century, with its massive suffering, found this hopeful theme particularly problematic. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website [LRH]
