Picturing Lucifer - A Talk by Darren Oldridge


Join Professor and Author, Darren Oldridge, for a talk exploring Lucifer and depictions of the Devil.

What does the Devil look like? This is a good question to ask in the days before Halloween, but one that is hard to answer. Artists have created a remarkable array of images of the "old enemy" over hundreds of years: from ravenous monsters to the captivating sculpture of Lucifer by Jacob Epstein that greets visitors to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. In this talk Darren Oldridge explores the conventions and curiosities of picturing the Devil, and relates these to wider themes in the history of this dark and complicated figure.
