Getting Real: The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve
7:30 PM, Cline Library Assembly Hall
Free and open the public
Description: Major Renaissance artists — Masaccio, Van Eyck, Dürer, and, above all, Milton — succeeded in giving Adam and Eve physical bodies, psychological depth, a complex marriage, and other attributes of real people. This success fulfilled an ancient theological dream, but it had unexpected consequences for the great origin story.
