Luminescent Dialogues: A Conversational Exchange about the Symbolic Role of Light in World Faiths, Art, and Cultures

For centuries around the globe, light has served as a metaphor for intangible forces, the belief in a higher power, and a meaning beyond what can be perceived by the eye alone. This online talk brings together experts on spiritual art.
