The Holy Land is a powerful theme in much Western art, but the land itself preserves a rich heritage of religious art from the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions. In this program, students engage with the Holy Land through a focus on media such as architecture, icons, inscriptions, mosaics, olive wood, sculpture, and stained glass windows.
The Ways in the Wilderness program explores biblical, monastic, and personal themes of wilderness as we visit sites in Israel, Palestine, and Jordan.
Abraham and His Children is an Old Testament course focusing upon the Abrahamic narratives of the Hebrew Bible, Genesis 11-25, and the traditions of Abraham as developed in the Talmud, New Testament, and Quran.
During the tour you will explore some of the key biblical landscapes to the east of the Jordan River, including the lands of Moab, Edom, and Midian. The Jordan study tour is intended as an add-on to our other programmes, but can also be taken as a stand-alone module.
