I have now done quite a few Context Conversations and Sara Magister is my #1 favorite presenter. She has a delightful personality, not to mention Italian accent, and presents information at a level high enough for professional art historians but also absolutely accessible to any audience. Her "tour" of the mosaics in Monreale Cathedral was superb, even inspiring.
The listeners are given the information to make their own connections (and think their own thoughts)about a source of light in the "Dark Ages." Inspiring.
Dra. Magister never disappoints. She draws from her wide-ranging command of art history to reveal the majesty of this cathedral and its stunning mosaics. I learned so much., and enjoyed every minute.
Filled with many beautiful images, this conversation was an engaging virtual visit guiding by an extraordinarily knowledgable guide!
A truly beautiful experience. Sara gave meaning to what we’d seen years ago at Monreale, but without the benefit of her expertise and guidance. It’s wonderful to have one of those moments when you realize you’ve just learned something that ‘connects all the dots’
