Recent interest in spiritual and religious themes in modern and contemporary art has led to a renewed recognition of the ongoing formative influence of the Bible on the arts. In this lecture, Dr. Dengerink Chaplin explores examples of biblical imagery in contemporary art, examining how the Bible has continued to shape the arts to the present day and, conversely, how modern and contemporary works can enrich our interpretation of Scripture.
