TU's Bell Lecture to Be Delivered by Dr. Clare Haynes of the University of Edinburgh

On this edition of our program, we offer a fascinating discussion concerning art, religion, and history with Dr. Clare Haynes of the University of Edinburgh. Tomorrow night, Thursday the 7th, Dr. Haynes will give the 2013 Rita and William H. Bell Distinguished Lecture at 7:30pm in Tyrrell Hall on the TU campus. It's free and open to the public, and it's presented by the TU Department of Philosophy and Religion. The title for this lecture is "Resisting Affinities: The Visual Arts and the Church of England Since the Reformation." As Dr. Haynes explains on today's StudioTulsa, more art is being commissioned today by Anglican and Episcopal churches than at any time since the Reformation. Why is this the case? And why now? In explaining such matters, Dr. Haynes makes several interesting points about the development and history of religious-themed art, both classical and modern. To learn more about this forthcoming lecture, please call the TU Department of Philosophy and Religion at 918-631-2279.
