Module Description

Art expresses many ineffable, spiritual qualities we can sense but may find difficult to express in language.  In this module, we will consider aspects of contemporary spirituality as they are reflected in art, including relationships with others, connections to space and place, the inner life and more.

Amanda Dillon: is a researcher at Dublin City University working on a major project looking at the spiritual practice of journaling with sacred texts. As a biblical scholar she is interested in how the Bible is received and interpreted by contemporary readers and artists and how it is portrayed in visual art and design. Female characters in the Bible and their afterlives are another dimension of her research. Amanda has published on the Bible in 21st century lectionaries; the Bible and Graphic Design, the Bible in the art of Marc Chagall; Manga Bibles; spirituality and art, and religion in Street Art.
