The Madonna in the Church | The Sacred Image

For the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, Denis McNamara takes us through another beautiful work of art in “The Sacred Image.”

In this episode, he details how painter Jan van Eyck was able to use light not only in a physical and literal way but also to bring out theological ideas about the Blessed Virgin Mary.
