Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) is partnering with the Duke Chapel and the Nasher Museum of Art to host "Miserere et Guerre," a series of 58 intaglio prints by French artist Georges Rouault (1871-1958).

From March 5 through April 16 during Lent, Duke Chapel will present images from the series that focus on Christ's redemptive sacrifice and the call for his disciples to journey with him to the cross. The Nasher's tandem installation, from March 18 through July 23, will highlight scenes that illustrate the plight of refugees and the devastations of war.

Featured events include Duke Chapel Choral Vespers  on March 9; a gallery talk with Philippe Rouault, great-grandson of the artist, and art collector Sandra Bowden on March 23; and a lecture on Rouault and social protest art to be given by Yale Divinity School's Noah Porter Professor Emeritus of Philosophical Theology, Nicholas Wolterstorff, on March 30 (co-sponsored by the Center for Christianity and Scholarship).
