In-person class on the art history of Spain … El Greco is everywhere!

Two Fridays:  June 17 & 24,  1:00 – 3:00 pm PT

This class will be held in a large room with a door open to outside for good ventilation. Book Passage will continue to follow all state and local health guidelines.

Spectacularly sited, Toledo is blessed with important vestiges of her role as the spiritual capital of Spain: Two exquisite and historically important Synagogues, a Sephardic Museum, the intriguing Mosque de la Luz, an Arab fortress, the Gothic Cathedral’s virtual gallery of paintings and its famous Transparente, San Roman church housing a Visigothic museum housing colorful murals.

El Greco is everywhere! — in several churches, his house/museum, the Tavera hospital, and the Museum of Santa Cruz. Visit the spectacular Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and study Mozarabic book illustrations created in nearby monasteries.

In this time of disquieting xenophobia it is enlightening to reflect on the possibilities of tolerance as we learn about the cooperation among the scholars of Toledo’s School of Translators: Jews, Muslims and Christians.

 

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and has led study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been favorites for years.
