Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “A Deification of Lincoln.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 23 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Alan Silverman will discuss the parallels between a lucky-find drawing of Abraham Lincoln and the famous continuous-line drawing “Head of Christ on the (Scarf) of St. Veronica.”
Silverman is a management and marketing consultant with engineering training. He claims to know almost nothing about history or art but what he learned in researching this talk.
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.
