Enriching Devotional Life Through Artwork: An In-Depth Study of Albrecht Dürer’s Small Passion Woodcuts

After a brief overview of the artist Albrecht Dürer, this presentation will center on using his Small Passion woodcuts as a devotional aid. The viewer will be drawn into Dürer’s pictorial accounts of Scripture and given insight to see the holy events of Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection as if they were happening right in front of their eyes. The focus will be on the suffering of Christ and his promise not only to be with his faithful people in their suffering, but also to bring it to good.
