Module Description

The question of what Jesus looked like has always captured people’s imagination. Art’s answers have been as varied as its creators and always culturally influenced. This short course looks at the central motifs, texts and dates of early Christian iconography, in its attempt to convey a deeper reality than just the physical appearance of the man Jesus. For in him, as Paul put it, early Christianity saw “the image of the invisible God” (Col 1:15).

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.
