There are endless examples of the Blessed Virgin Mary in painting, sculpture, and other forms.
But those made especially for places where she has appeared to the faithful are a special category that attempt to capture what the original “seers” experienced at specific times and places.
This slide lecture will look at evidence from Fatima, Portugal, Lourdes, France, and Guadalupe, Mexico. It will be led by Barbara Mitchell, a PhD art historian and member of St. Michael Parish in Livermore. Dr. Mitchell is also a docent at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. All are welcome.
