The image of Mary Magdalene is one of the most familiar in Christian art but what do we really know of her? How does she usually appear in art and sculpture? Does her image change depending upon the period in which she is being depicted? To what extent does her image change within one artist’s work and why? The Autumn School will be an opportunity to explore and analyse the history, art and literature surrounding this fascinating saint. The event will consist of a group of no more than thirty participants.
