In this lecture, John Stackhouse will focus on Antoni Gaudí’s main buildings in Barcelona, locating them within the Catalan Modernisme movement, the general Modernist movement (which typically excludes Gaudí), and Barcelonan surrealism (including Miró and Dalí)–but also, and chiefly, within a broad Christian theology of creation and redemption, reaching back to Hieronymus Bosch, that provides the interpretative key to his masterpiece, La Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família.

Dr. John Stackhouse is a skilled editor, prolific writer and global speaker. In addition to being the Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College, Dr. Stackhouse is a jazz musician and hockey enthusiast. Read his full bio.
