What role does sacred art play in religious and non-religious life? What are the challenges presented by sacred art for faith communities and museums? Students will develop their understanding of religion and worldviews through close-looking and analysis of sacred artworks. Through critical reflection, students will discuss a range of concepts including the sacred, form and function, symbolism, and the use of materials and object histories.
