Symbols of Faith: Art in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim Traditions
Ori Z. Soltes will give a lavishly illustrated talk exploring how symbols—numbers, colors, geometric forms, gestures, and figures—are used in convergent and divergent ways in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim visual art; how so many of them derive from earlier imagery in pagan antiquity; and how they continue to be useful and relevant in the art of the modern secular world.
