The Old and New Testaments in Islamic Painting with Dr. Robert Hillenbrand
Stories of the prophets from the Old and New Testaments have had a long history of illustration in Islamic painting traditions. Drawing from accounts in the Qur’an and other sources in Islamic literature, scholars, poets, historians and storytellers developed new texts on the lives of the prophets. These texts were often accompanied by paintings. Dr. Robert Hillenbrand will explore the richness of some of these literary and artistic traditions.

Explore traditions in Persian art through this lecture series highlighting current research in the field. Upcoming lectures: Dr. Ladan Akbarnia, British Museum (November 15); and Dr. Amy Landau, Walters Art Museum (December 6).

Dr. Hillenbrand will present an additional lecture on September 26 as part of the Society for Asian Art’s Arts of Asia lecture series Arts of the Islamic World.
