The University will host Charles Rosenberg, professor of art history at the University of Notre Dame, as he presents “The Sistine Chapel History and Meaning” at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, October 28, in Holy Cross Lounge on the 3rd floor of Franz Hall. His presentation will be the annual Hesburgh Lecture, sponsored by the Garaventa Center and the Notre Dame Alumni Club of Portland.
Rosenberg’s lecture considers a number of issues relating to the famous Renaissance frescoes covering the walls of the Sistine Chapel, including their relationship to the chapel’s functions in the past and present.
Started in 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture series honors Rev. Ted Hesburgh, C.S.C., a lifelong learner and the former president of the University of Notre Dame. The lectures provide an opportunity for the University of Portland and University of Notre Dame, both Congregation of Holy Cross schools, to come together in stimulating and thoughtful dialogue.
