Calvary Relocated

The Summer Conference of the Ecclesiastical History Society was held at Cardiff University from the 19th-22nd July 2006. During the conference, Dr John Morgan-Guy, Research Fellow, presented a paper entitled “Calvary Relocated: Expressions of Renewed Faith and Hope in the Work of Twentieth Century Welsh Artists”, in which he focussed on examples of the work of David Jones, Mignon Griffiths and Ivor Williams. He explored the phenomenon of “relocation” (the placing of Biblical events within contemporary visual and cultural landscapes) and how that in its turn contributed to the revival of faith and hope within the Christian community at a time in Wales of major religious and social upheaval.
