The Work of Our Hands: A Multi-Venue Exhibition of Liturgical Vestments

Location: Various Venues Across Campus

Exhibition runs March 19 - June 1

A 2018 exhibition in New York City, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Cloisters, brought wide public attention to the history and artistry of liturgical vestments. Titled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," it included some papal vestments borrowed from the Vatican Museums, and a great many outfits by leading international fashion designers. This inspired an examination of Notre Dame's own treasury of handmade liturgical vestments, with appreciation for the devout creativity, skill, and humility of their mostly anonymous artists, and without losing sight of their proper purpose, functionality, and symbolism. To that end, four exceptional items have been carefully selected from Notre Dame's collection of liturgical vestments as part of this multi-venue exhibition across campus. Visitors are encouraged to stop at each venue on a self-guided tour to learn more about these works and the generative effect of faith.…

Cosmos and Creation in the Twelfth Century World Premier

-

Location: Jordan Hall of Science

Dr. Margot Fassler and digital artist Christian Jara created this full-dome, digitized model of the stages of creation of the universe and of the motion of the cosmos based on the theological and scientific understandings of Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179). The score for the display is based on Hildegard’s compositions, and sung by Sacred Music Notre Dame students. Images are taken from an illuminated copy of Hildegard’s treatise Scivias, written in the 1140’s and copied in the last years of her life. This work brings artistic and theological works of a newly minted Doctor of the Church into the modern planetarium.…
