|About the Director|
Assistant Professor, Department of Religion
Natalie Carnes teaches a wide variety of issues and figures in Christian theology, but her writing asks questions about beauty, knowledge, and images. She received an BA degree from Harvard, a Master's in Theology from the University of Chicago, and a PhD from Duke University. She lives in Waco with her husband Matthew, who writes on theological issues around agriculture and land reform, and her two daughters Chora (four) and Edith (one), who do not write on any theological topics at all.Her family will join her for the program in St Andrews.
This course will explore the deep roots of image-making and image-breaking in the Christian tradition. We will pay special attention to the image-breaking that happened in St Andrews itself, where many altars were stripped and icons destroyed as idols in the Reformation. Yet not all images were smashed. The class will explore these sites of destruction and preservation as we ask: How do Christians discern image from idol?
All students will be required to take Dr. Carnes' course while attending the Baylor in St. Andrews program. All other courses will be chosen from the 2014-2015 St. Andrews's University course list.
