Mary and the Catholic Imagination: Lecture by Wendy M. Wright, Ph.D.
STARTS: Monday, March 11, 2013 at 4:00 PM
ENDS: Monday, March 11, 2013 at 6:00 PM
In a moving interpretation of 25 photos, Wendy Wright explores the nature of the Catholic imagination through the lens of the many faces of the Virgin Mary found in the “minority majority” Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The product of a seven-year pilgrimage through this region, these images reveal the rich textures of Catholic Marian experience and allow a glimpse into the exquisite tenderness and remarkable vigor with which she is embraced. Mary emerges in this visual and textual portrait as the global Church’s point vierge, the “virgin point” of deep convergence of the tradition’s wide theological, cultural, historical, and geographical diversity. Wendy M. Wright is Professor of Theology at Creighton University. She is the author of 15 books on Christian spirituality. Light refreshments will be served after the lecture. This event is free and open to the public
