Dr. Felicity Harley-McGowan

Yale Divinity School

Felicity Harley-McGowan is Lecturer in the History of Art and her work centers on the origins and development of Christian iconography within the visual culture of Roman late antiquity. She has held research fellowships at the Warburg Institute, University of London, and the British School at Rome; and before coming to Yale was the Gerry Higgins Lecturer in Medieval Art History at the University of Melbourne. Felicity has a strong interest in the receptions of ancient art, including the histories of collecting, and objects inspire her teaching practice as well as research. Her publications cover a range of topics, including graffiti, amulets, suicide, Passion iconography, and the image of Christ as Salvator Mundi. An ongoing focus is the representation of violence, and she is currently preparing a book on the earliest images of crucifixion in late antiquity (ca. 200-600 AD).
