Meet Me at the CAM - The Crucifix: from Religious Image to Art Object

  • Date:  April 11, 2017
  • Time:  10:00am – 12:00pm

Free for museum members, NU faculty, staff and students. $5 others. Light refreshments served.

Dr. Mary Meany will talk about the religious image of the crucifix in art, while also addressing the effect of taking religious objects out of their religious setting.

Mary Walsh Meany retired in 2008 from Siena College in Loudonville, NY, where she was a professor in the Dept. of Religious Studies.  She received her Ph.D. from Fordham University where she studied Church History. She has concentrated on medieval Christianity, especially the early Franciscan movement. Her interest in the image of the Crucifix began with her dissertation on “The Image of Christ in Julian of Norwich,” and continued during her study of the medieval Franciscan devotional classic, “Meditaciones vitae Christi.”  Currently she is a member of the study-group Women in the Franciscan Tradition which meets annually at the International Congress of Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI. She is a Buffalo Booster.
