Callahan Lecture: Illustrating Victorious Lives: Jaina Narrative Painting

March 8, 2014

On Saturday, March 8, the BMA welcomed Robert J. Del Bontà, Ph.D., who led the discussion Illustrating Victorious Lives: Jaina Narrative Painting. Dr. Del Bontà examined the illustrated manuscripts that detail the lives of the Jainas, through the lens of the Svetambara and Digambara. Seeing these illustrated narratives side by side was both rare and informative, and it was the first lecture on this topic held at the BMA.
