Webinar for Secondary Teachers
Medieval Art: Objects of Study, Power, Prayer
Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 4:00–5:30 p.m. PST

Medieval images functioned as objects of religious study, expressions of political authority, and as powerful entry points to prayer. Using the exhibition Canterbury and St. Albans: Treasures from Church and Cloister as a catalyst for discussion, curator Kristen Collins will discuss the various roles of art during the Middle Ages. Museum educators at the Getty Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art will explore how to use medieval art to address History/Social Studies content standards and the Common Core English Language Arts standards, including connections to Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

This webinar is developed in collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
