Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “An Apotheosis of Lincoln.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, March 4 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Alan Silverman will lead the Seminar and will discuss how an unusual drawing of Abraham Lincoln, inspired by “Head of Christ on the Veil of St. Veronica,” is shown to be consistent with the artistic deification of Lincoln and Washington.
Silverman says he knows nothing about art, but that he likes a good argument; his hypothesis about this artwork has generated more than one argument already.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research. All Seminars are open to the public. Admission is free.
