  • Picturing Mary Lecture

    The Rev. Stefanos Alexopoulos gave a lecture at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in the context of the "Picturing Mary" Exhibition. His lecture was titled: "Mary as Woman, Mother, Idea in the Byzantine Tradition". In his lecture he examined Puccio Capanna’s Madonna and Child (ca. 1330) and offered a theological interpretation using the Akathist Hymn of the Byzantine Tradition as his theological text. He argued that Puccio Capanna's panel is not just a picture, made of wood and colors, but an icon, a theology in painting, teaching and proclaiming the Mystery of the Incarnation.
