Durham University’s Centre for Catholic Studies and The University of Notre Dame host:


Nativity Scenes: A Live Performance


The Catholic Studies London Christmas Lecture


Stefano Cracolici (Durham University) traces the history of the nativity scene as a seasonal display in art, cinema and popular culture. His lecture will also focus on its performative re-enactments as ‘living nativity scenes’ (tableaux vivants), in which real humans and animals interact. The presentation will also discuss two little-known admirable paintings by Franz von Rohden at Ushaw College, in which living contemporary characters are featured.


6.30pm at the University of Notre Dame (USA) in England, 1-4 Suffolk Street, London, SW1Y 4HG
