Lent Devotional: Raphael’s Transfiguration

This Lent Devotional focuses on Raphael’s Transfiguration. Just follow the link to find an analysis of the painting and a contemplation on the spiritual implications of the work.

Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, commonly known as Raphael, was one of the greatest artists of the High Italian Renaissance. In this work he graphically portrays one of the most enigmatic events of Jesus’ life and contrasts it with the inability of his disciples to cast out a demon from a boy. You can find the story in the gospels, we used the account from Luke 9:28-45.

If you are interested in Art as it relates to your devotional activities I have a ton of material available to you:
