We Three Kings: The Journey of the Magi

Thursday 6th January 11.00AM

Join our guest lecturer Leslie Primo on the feast day of Epiphany as we explore the story of the Three Kings in the history of art.

There have been many pictorial representations of the three Magi from as early as at least the 6th century. Indeed, a vast array of artists from Bosch, Botticelli and Bruegel to Dürer, Masaccio and Rubens were all fascinated by the story and its potential for pictorial interpretation. However, their depictions have been anything but consistent. Leslie will unravel the myths surrounding the story of the Adoration of the Magi, from its Eastern and pagan roots to its current Christian interpretation.  We will trace the iconographic changes in depictions of the kings by examining a beautiful and varied array of images made across many centuries, whilst deciphering the meaning of the term ‘magi’ and exploring what the story means in contemporary society.

This is a live-streamed talk at 11.00am (UK time). Tune in from anywhere in the world to watch or enjoy a recorded version of the lecture which can be accessed for up to 2 days afterwards. It will last approximately one hour including Q&A. For those who are unable to participate live, you will automatically be sent a recording soon after the end of the session. Please note, the recording is only available to those who have not been able to participate live, and it is not possible to purchase a recording after booking has closed.

Bookings close the day before the event is streamed.
