We cordially invite you to the guest lecture by Prof. Dr Stephan Winter (Chair of Liturgical Studies, University of Tübingen) on Wednesday, 14 December 2022 at 6 pm.

Light and Christmas – for us they belong together. Even from their origins, the two great festivals of the Christmas cycle – the Nativity (25 December) and the Epiphany (6 January) – are characterised by the interpretation of cosmological light phenomena. But how do these impressive metaphors of light relate to the socio-cultural contexts in which they are embedded? In this exciting lecture, selected testimonies from the Roman liturgical tradition of the Christmas season will be brought into dialogue with the artworks in the special exhibition “Radiance“.

A public guided tour of the exhibition will also take place on the same day from 5 to 6 pm.
