Hear from the doctoral students of Talking Religion, and get a taste of the cutting edge research behind the Imagining the Divine exhibition.

The image of Christ and the image of Buddha emerged around the same time, but are they connected? Doctoral students Sylvia and Hugo trace the extraordinary story of these developments through two sculptures of these most important of figures.

This Talking Religion Gallery Talk takes place in the Exhibition Galleries.

Talks are free with the price of exhibition admission and no additional booking is necessary. Meet in Gallery 58.
