Public Lecture

The Bible in the Modern Artistic Imagination

Monday, Jul 17, 2017 at 7:30PM - 9:00 PM

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.


Recent interest in spiritual and religious themes in modern and contemporary art has led to a renewed recognition of the ongoing formative influence of the Bible on the arts. In this lecture, Dr. Dengerink Chaplin explores examples of biblical imagery in contemporary art, examining how the Bible has continued to shape the arts to the present day and, conversely, how modern and contemporary works can enrich our interpretation of Scripture.

This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series. 

Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin has a longstanding track record of writing and speaking about the arts and aesthetics. She is a Teaching Fellow in Religion, Philosophy and the Arts at the University of London. Originally from Amsterdam, she taught for eight years at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto where she was also an Associate Member of the Toronto School of Theology. She served as President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetics from 2005 until 2007 and has published widely for both academic and public audiences. Her publications include articles or chapters for Contemporary Aesthetics, Radical Orthodoxy and the Reformed TraditionThe Routledge Companion to Aesthetics and, most recently, a chapter on a group of Northern Ireland muralists for Oxford University Press’s Strategic Peacebuilding series (forthcoming). She co-authored the textbook Art and Soul: Signposts for Christians in the Arts and currently works as an independent scholar in Cambridge, UK.

Dr. Dengerink Chaplin will be teaching the class "Spirituality & Religion in Contemporary Art" from July 17–21, 2017 as part of our 2017 Summer Programs. Learn more at
