Module Description

In the perception of people living under Roman rule, the cross was an instrument of oppression, torture and public shame. The depiction of Christ suffering and redemption in early Christian art was far from obvious and the iconography of the Passion and Resurrection of the Redeemer developed over centuries. This short course looks at the way early Christians depicted suffering and salvation in the life of Christ and what they managed to convey of their own suffering and hopes in those images.

Daniele Pevarello teaches Early Christianity in the School of Religion, Theology, and Peace Studies at Trinity College Dublin. He studied Second Temple Judaism, New Testament and early Christianity in Rome, Bielefeld and Cambridge. His research focuses on the interaction between Early Christian thought and Graeco-Roman culture with special emphasis on the origins of Christian asceticism and the construction of Christian regional identities in the late Antique world.
