About the Event

In the later Middle Ages, the Cult of the Virgin Mary emerged out of a need to consolidate the power of the Christian Church. The Virgin Mary’s motherhood transformed the art of the era as much as it transformed the practice of religion. This talk explores the shifting image of the Virgin Mary in the Middle Ages, how She became the focus of art and prayer and how the humanity of motherhood set the standard, for better or worse, for women throughout Europe.
