Professor LeDonne is trying out something new. He is offering an online course he calls Portraits of Jesus. To find out more information, click on this link HERE.
This is the course description: In this course we will examine some of the different "Jesuses" who have
emerged through the ages, including several interpretations of Jesus in
historical studies, and several interpretations of Jesus from art and
literature. This course will weave together three primary threads: 1)
the Jesus of history; 2) ancient representations of Jesus; and 3) the
various modern Jesuses who embody various symbols, ideologies,
collective memories, and cultural identities. Through lecture and
discussion, we will examine diverse portraits of Jesus in history,
literature, art, song, and film throughout history.
