Quilted Iconography: Practicing Resurrection Week 5


Studying holy images has become a lost discipline in many faith communities, but it has deep roots in almost every tradition. Using sections of her Underground Railroad quilt as guides, Barbara Rogerson will help us see how visual arts can bring forth deep spiritual truths, and how sharing those in the context of community can enhance our collective theology of justice for the oppressed.

This week you’re invited to interact with the images from Barbara’s quilt in a way that is meaningful to you. You may wish to engage with the whole quilt, or with one or more of the individual pieces. Click any image to open it in a new browser window. Right-click and choose “Save Image As…” to download it to your device.
