Communicating the Sacred, Part 2 of 2

The sacred and the secular: in the history of art and ideas, from antiquity into the modern world, how do these combine and diverge to form patterns of religious and social behavior and thought? Robert Gregg and Anabel Wharton discuss their study, which combines art history and literary analysis as methods for understanding early Christian culture in the Mediterranean basin.

At the time of this interview, Gregg was a professor in the Divinity School at Duke University. Wharton (formerly Ann Epstein), a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1985-86), was professor of art history at Duke University.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
