Scientific and creative work of the academic staff of the academic bachelor and master study programme “Bible Art”

The academic Bachelor and Master study programme “Bible art” was developed since 1993 encompassing three directions of the Church visual art:

  1. Eastern Orthodox icon painting (the only one in Europe),
  2. Western traditional Altar painting,
  3. Graphic art (books etc.).

Integrative research in the field of sacred art and theology is coordinated by rector of LChrA prof. S.Gūtmane. Both artists and theologians are involved in implementation of the study programme. Unique publications have been prepared by prof. J.N.Vējš, Mag. in Art Therapy B. Soloveja, asist.prof. G.Dišlers, lect. J.Jefuni,  and prominent excellence in icon painting has been presented by visiting prof. G.Mironov (RU), DrHC G.van Durtanossky (D), visiting prof. J.Jarašius (LT), A.Rimkevicius (LT), lect. A.Shabelnik, graphic artist prof. N.Zirnīte, painter prof. L.Pereca and prof. I.Sergejeva among others.

Canonical icon painting termed “theology in colours” is supported by theological research in its field in order to achieve the highest possible artistic quality . Academic Bachelor and Master study programmes at Latvian Christian academy are unique in the European context.
