Workshop: Annabel Wharton “Holy Sepulchres: From the Pre-Modern to the Anthropocene”
February 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This workshop is open to UW–Madison Faculty and Graduate Students.
Prof. Annabel Wharton will lead the “Holy Sepulchres: From the Pre-Modern to the Anthropocene” workshop discussion on Friday, February 26th, 2021 at 12:00pm CST via Zoom. The Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, traditionally identified as marking the place of Jesus’ execution, burial and resurrection, was constructed in the fourth century and reconstructed often over the course of the centuries. Because of the deep Christian veneration of the Holy Sepulchre, models of the site have been consistently produced in the West from late antiquity to the present. Discussion considers how changes in the form and function of these models document dramatic shifts in the ways in which the world is seen, raising questions about periodization and historical understanding.
