In her talk, Dr. Perry will discuss how art and religion have had a dynamic and intertwined relationship over the centuries. It provides a fascinating field of study for those interested in the artistic dimensions of religion, or in the religious/spiritual dimensions of art. Art and religion, while remaining distinct categories despite some remarkable overlapping, have influenced and enhanced each other. But they have also provided arenas for conflict.
