Talk june 2018 A4 Jonah

Talk in the Chapel: Thursday 28th June 2018, 6.15-7.15
The Sign of Jonah.
Why was Jonah so important in early Christian Art and Thought?
A talk by Miriam Stevenson and Richard Gill

From the New Testament onwards the 'Sign of Jonah' has held a central place in Christian imagination. The story of this Old Testament prophet has been celebrated as both a foreshadowing of Christ's death and resurrection and as a more personal emblem of despair and rescue. This talk explores the origins of 'the sign of Jonah' and its use from early Church writings to modern poetry. It also looks at the dramatic and surprisingly glamorous images of Jonah in early Christian Art and the association of this image with petition, particularly in the medieval presentation of the psalms. For a thousand years, the image of the prophet to Nineveh was an important symbol of the personal hope founded on the Resurrection.
