At the Geological Society, Piccadilly
In contrast to the polytheistic religions and their exuberant depictions of their many gods, Christianity, Judaism and Islam have distinct reservations about displaying images of their God.
Panellists Professor Judith Herrin, King’s College London; Dr Sabiha Al Khemir, Museum of Islamic Art, Doha; Professor Philip Alexander, University of Manchester Centre for Jewish Studies; and historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes explore iconoclasm and why, when and how it happens.
Supported by the London Centre for Arts and Cultural Enterprise. For more information on LCACE's events complementing Byzantium 330-1453 visit www.lcace.org.uk/events
