Please join the Msgr. John Mary Fraser Centre on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 4 p.m. in Classroom A of Regis College (100 Wellesley St. W.) as Dr. Patrizia Granziera presents a lecture entitled “Serpents and Dragons: Mary and Her Enemies in Mexican and Indian Art.”
Patrizia Granziera is Professor of Art History at the University of Morelos, Cuernavaca, Mexico. She has a Ph.D. in Art History from University of Warwick. Her research focuses on the iconography of gardens and landscapes and on the image and symbolism of the divine feminine. Along with many published articles, she co-authored Image of the Divine Feminine in Mexico: Aztec Goddesses and Christian Madonnas (Ashgate 2012). In her presentation, “Serpents and Dragons: Mary and Her Enemies in Mexican and Indian Art,” Dr. Granziera will explore how Marian images in colonial Mexico and India represented the idea of the divine feminine and how European missionaries responded to the popularity of the goddesses in these newly conquered lands.
This event, sponsored by the Msrgr. John Mary Fraser Centre, is offered with the support of the TST Comparative Theology Group, Regis College, Trinity College, and Emmanuel College. Please be sure to register.
