Second Sunday of Advent 2016: Art for Advent

Today, for the Second Sunday of Advent, art historian James Romaine examines The Belles Heures of Jeanne de France, duc de Berry, by the Limbourg Brothers, and discusses how the artists' visual language of depicting biblical subjects in every-day terms creates a sacred experience that connects heaven and earth.

Romaine, co-founder of the Association of Scholars of Christianity in the History of Art, writes and directs the Art for Advent series of which this video is a part.
