1. Visio Divina: An Old--and New--Spiritual Practice. Visio Divina is the fascinating study of works of art to discern their hidden meanings, and where the viewer's interpretation of the work may be very different from the artist's intentions. For one of its sessions, the class will go on a field trip to the Princeton University Art Museum.
