An exhibit of life cast sculptures based on the 7 Deadly Sins – as popularised by the 13th Century Italian poet Dante Alighieri – in his book the Divine Comedy, are currently being displayed in the school library until the end of term.
The sculptures are exhibited to complement the schools weekly Humanities Thought for the Week – which students study during their tutorial time – and which will this term consist in a meaningful exploration of the Christian teaching of the 7 Deadly Sins.
Head of Religion and Ethics, Richard Brock – the creator of school’s Thought for the Week and the life cast sculptures, commented that “It demonstrates, I think, that out school is pushing out some pretty high end cultural stuff. Dante, alongside Shakespeare, is arguably one of the all-time greatest poets. It’s great that out students get an opportunity to engage with these ideas in a meaningful way.” HTW.pdf (205 downloads)
