iconography classes online | iconography of the saints

In the iconography classes online | Iconography of the Saints, the participants will be able to apply methods of iconographic analysis.

And recognise symbols and attributes of the Saints, through practical exercises and other resources for future use.

In the context of Art History and Museology, the careful description and interpretation of artistic objects allows us to see something more than what is immediately presented. For instance, an image of a young man with a lily in hand approaching a praying girl ceases to be just that, and becomes a representation of the Annunciation, where the Archangel Gabriel presents himself to Mary, stating that she is pregnant with the Saviour.
