Nov 19 | Dr. Denis McNamara: Shadow, Image, and Reality
November 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lumen Veritatis is pleased to welcome inaugural speaker Dr. Denis McNamara, who will present: “Shadow, Image, Reality: The Church Building as a Sacrament of Heaven.”
Dr. Denis McNamara is Associate Director and Associate Professor at the Liturgical Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake, a graduate program in Liturgical Studies founded by Cardinal Francis George of Chicago in 2000. Dr. McNamara teaches courses on the Liturgical Movement, Liturgical Art and Architecture, Liturgical Inculturation, The Liturgical Year and Sacramental Aesthetics. He holds a BA in the History of Art from Yale University and a PhD in Architectural History from the University of Virginia, where he concentrated his research on the study of ecclesiastical architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Dr. McNamara makes a specialty of bridging the gap between the Church’s great artistic tradition and the documents of the Second Vatican Council. He has also done groundbreaking research on the sacramental meaning of the classical architectural tradition.
Join us at Lansing Catholic High School, in the auditorium, at 7pm on Saturday, November 19th, for this exciting event.
