Envisioning the Eucharist: Transcending the Literal in Medieval and Byzantine Art, a symposium at the Art Institute of Chicago, February 11, 2014, examines the assertion that medieval and Byzantine art functioned not as a mere supplement to or reduction of advanced theological concepts, but as theology in its own right.

The symposium features papers of new scholarship that expore how developing Eucharistic doctrine was translated—and transformed—visually.
