Art for Holy Week: Friday

Continuing his Art for Holy Week series, art historian Dr. James Romaine explores for Good Friday the Albrecht Durer engraving The Crucifixion (from The Engraved Passion). The 1511 engraving shows us how Durer's creative treatment of Christ's crucifixion evolved from narrative subject to spiritual experience of event participants and, ultimately, to use of darkness and light to describe the spiritual battle between grace and evil.

Romaine wrote and narrates the series.
