ISS Seminars

Saturday 26 August, 2017 — The Pilgrimage of a Hermit

This seminar has been cancelled because Rev'd Carlie is not well.

The Rev'd Carlie Hanna has experience of the life of a Hermit. She embarked on her pilgrimage as a hermit living in Geelong in early 2016. On this Saturday morning she will share something of the special nature of this calling as she has begun to experience it. From 10.30 am to 12.30 pm in the parish hall.

This will be a morning shared with the Anglican Benedictine Oblates of St Mark's Abbey, Camperdown.

See the
ISS page for further details.

Thursday 28 September, 2017 — The Impact of the Reformation on British Art

Most of the public art in Britain before the Reformation was in churches, cathedrals, and monastic foundations. Henry VIII's decision to dissolve the monasteries removed a great many of these treasures. Many fell into private hands or were hidden. Some are being rediscovered. But the iconoclastic tendencies which emerged enabled significant numbers of people to attack and destroy works of art in the various phases of the English Reformation, running from the 1540s to the 1650s. With religious imagery (and Greco-Roman mythology) outlawed, English artists focussed on portraiture to survive, and eventually still life and landscape emerged as acceptable genres. Not until the nineteenth century did religious imagery return.

Bishop Ian George, former Archbishop of Adelaide, and Archdeacon Craig D'Alton, vicar of St Mary's North Melbourne, will discuss the issues involved with this theme at 7.30 pm on September 28th.
