More than silent preaching: didactic use of wall painting in the Middle Ages
Talbot School of Theology
Various visual arts were used in churches throughout the Middle Ages to instruct and form the spiritual lives of those who worshiped in them. In an increasingly “post-literate” culture, what might we learn from the didactic use of the visual arts by the church in the medieval era that would strengthen our teaching today? This article focuses on wallpainting, the most common form of visual art in medieval sanctuaries.
