In recent years, Christmas has morphed into a highly commercialized holiday and this tends to overshadow its deeper historical context. Join us as we meet and greet several saints of the Christian faith – who each have their own unique connection to the Nativity scene.

We will begin our discussion with Saint Nicholas and the connection to Father Christmas. From there, our expert will introduce Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Lucy. We will look at paintings of them, hear their stories, and learn about their symbols. Following this discussion, participants will be able to pick up on fascinating allusions to these religious icons during their next trip to the art museum, as well as while finishing their local Christmas shopping.

This series has been designed to be enjoyed as part of a multi-part holiday series, led by Sarah Ciacci. For more details, please click here.
