Praying with Art: James Tissot’s Life of Christ – Part I

Sept. 17 | Oct. 1, 15, 29 | Nov. 12, 26 | Dec. 10, 2024

After a powerful religious experience in 1885, the French society painter James Tissot abandoned his worldly art and ways, dedicating himself for ten years to producing 350 paintings of the life of Christ. For authenticity’s sake, he based his paintings on three years of sketching and photographing in the Holy Land, thought to be at that time virtually unchanged from the time of Christ.

For the next two semesters we will discuss and pray with some of these images. For participants who want something to read besides the Scriptures, we will coordinate the images with The Life of Jesus by Andrea Tornielli, although this is not a required text.

Facilitator: Fr. Peter Fennessy, SJ, is a long-time member of Manresa’s ministerial team.
