Sardella to Lecture at Franklin Historical Museum

Our Second Sunday Speaker Series features the return on Dennis Sardella, from the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Mass. Dennis has been a docent at the Museum of Russian Icons since 2012, where he leads gallery tours and introduces visitors to the world of Russian icons. He also writes and speaks regularly to area groups on the topics of religious icons and the role they play in Eastern Christian spirituality. 
Sardella was a professor at Boston College from 1967 until 2012. In 1990, he became the founding director of the Boston College Presidential Scholars Program, which he directed until his retirement in 2010. For 17 years, he and his wife led groups of Boston College Presidential Scholars on month-long study trips to France, and they have continued to travel extensively throughout Western Europe.
Dennis’ presentation will introduce you to a selection of the Museum’s collection of icons, and explaining their history, how they are created, how to understand them, and the role they play in Eastern Christian spirituality.
Join us Sunday, November 13 at 1 p.m. The Second Sunday Speaker Series is supported by the Friends of the Franklin Historical Museum. Admission is always free.
