The Healing Impulse of Raphael’s “Transfiguration” at Easter 2020

The Death of Raphael by Nicolas-André Monsiau (1754-1837)

The Holy Week in 2020 includes the 500th anniversary of the death of Renaissance master artist  Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino  known as Raphael, on April 6 in 1520. His last painting was the Transfiguration of the Christ, which, according to the biographers of his era, stood at the foot of his bed as he died. A great deal has been written about the meaning of Raphael’s Transfiguration, and in this First Tuesday session for April 2020, Mary Stewart Adams will lead us through a consideration of this master work in relation to the Orion region of constellations, to the Red Window at the Goetheanum, and as a healing impulse for our time.
