Art for Holy Week: Wednesday

Today, as part of his Art for Holy Week series, art historian Dr. James Romaine discusses Albrecht Durer's Christ Expelling the Money Lenders (from The Small Passion). The 1508 woodcut offers context for the development of devotional narrative images, which was a subject of debate on the proper uses of visual art on the eve of the Protestant Reformation and also challenged art's use as a substitute for Christ. The video series is written and narrated by Romaine.
