The Book of Genesis in the Eyes of Great Artists   

From the eleventh century doors of Hildesheim to the prints of Jacob Lawrence in the late 20th century, the artists of the Western tradition (and some from the Islamic world) have illustrated the stories of the Book of Genesis. Just think of Michelangelo's Sistine ceiling or Ghiberti's "Gates of Paradise" in Florence; the storytelling geniuses of the 17th century Rembrandt, Velazquez, and Poussin; or the incomparable depiction of the Tower of Babel by Pieter Brueghel. This class will match up the biblical texts in translation with the ever-evolving interpretations by these artists and others, both famous and less-known.
