Taking Flesh: Incarnation, Embodiment and Artistry

July 19 - July 23

Taught by The Rev. Dr. Trevor Hart

Honorary Professor of Divinity, the University of St. Andrews and Rector, St. Andrew’s Episcopal ChurchDescription: God as creator taking on the flesh of creation in order to redeem, transform, and exalt that creation is at the heart of the Christian gospel and also central to our existence as embodied beings in God’s creation of both “things visible and invisible.” In an analogous manner, for the human creature to be fully human involves us in repeated acts of flesh-taking and meaning- making. The practices and products of human artistic making, albeit only one sphere in which this occurs, provide a particularly appropriate paradigm as they straddle the boundary between material and non-material reality, thereby drawing us more fully into each. Considering different ways in which flesh is “taken” and “transformed” in the arts may thus aid us both in situating them theologically and in reckoning with some of the peculiar tensions and resolutions involved in our creaturely being-in-the-world.
