Image, Idol, Christ – Symposium

Eastern Orthodox venerate icons. Roman Catholics pray before statues. Protestants worry about idolatry. For centuries the question of images has divided the church. Can images now help unite it? Scholars and artists from the three major Christian traditions discuss the church’s past, present, and future with images. Join Carole Baker (Catholic), Dmitri Andreyev (Orthodox), and Matthew Milliner (Reformed) as we ask:

When is an image an idol?

Why is there so much violence around images in the world?

Do we need iconoclasm today?

How deep are our differences over images?

What role might images have in a reconciled church?

What do images have to do with the scriptural claim that Christ is the Image of the invisible God?
