Dr. Lionel Gracey graduated with a medical degree from the University of Cambridge, England and completed postgraduate studies at Harvard University in 1963. He was appointed Consultant Surgeon to the Royal Free Hospital, University of London, from 1966-91. Following retirement, he obtained a pontifical degree in theology from the Maryvale Institute, Birmingham, where he is currently a Lecturer in Religious Art. He writes about religious art for StAR (Saint Austin Review) and The Sower.  
Peter’s answer to Christ’s question “who do you say that I am?” (Mt 16:15) emphasizes Christ’s divinity, yet the villagers of Nazareth asked “Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary?” (Mk 6:3). From a study of twenty great paintings we will see how the human and divine natures are united in the Person of Christ.
