Lecture - Francesco Zahra`s Apotheosis - Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale

Francesco Zahra’s Apotheosis. The gloria of St. Paul at the Aula Capitolare, Lecture by Prof. Keith Sciberras


The Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale invites you to the lecture ‘Francesco Zahra’s Apotheosis. The gloria of St. Paul at the Aula Capitulare’ by Prof. Keith Sciberras. 




The lecture discusses one of the major artistic productions of Late Baroque Malta, namely Francesco Zahra's paintings representing the Glory of St Paul for the Aula Capitolare at Mdina. Prof. Sciberras will discuss this work within the context of Zahra's oeuvre and will place it within the framework of other works of art being commissioned from major painters, sculptors and silversmiths of the period by the Cathedral Chapter. In many ways, the ceiling of the Chapter Hall can be seen as the most remarkable of the Late Baroque decorative schemes produced by a Maltese artist. The lecture will analyse its complicated iconography and will also discuss elements of style, technique and methods of patronage. Entrance for the event will be from the Cathedral's side. This event is being organised under the auspices of the History of Art department, University of Malta. 

14th December, 1930hrs, Aula Capitolare, Mdina Cathedral
