About the Event
This tour of Edgewater’s Norman Gothic Church, St. Gregory the Great, will highlight and ‘decode’ the rich symbolism of the church’s liturgical art - from stained glass windows and carved saints to decorative medallions and color symbolism.
The abundance and coherence of St. Gregory the Great’s art and iconography is the unique result of a close collaboration between the founding pastor, Rev. Monsignor Michael Klasen (1874-1945) and the architect and artisans commissioned to furnish the church. As we will see, every detail of the art and design serves to illuminate scripture and church history.
Guided by: Sarah Crow (Catholic Church Guide and artist-in-residence at St Gregory's Hall)
