Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. What do these gifts really mean? And who were the men that carried them?
In this talk Rose Balston will traverse the extraordinary story of these kings from the East, and how they have been portrayed in the great art works of history. Ranging across the ages from 6th century Ravenna through to the Renaissance, we’ll look at some of the most glorious and recognisable images of the Three Magi and their precious gifts. This is a talk filled with wonder, mystery, a lot of gold and some stunningly beautiful art.
