02 April 2021

Part 6: When Pilate learnt that Jesus was dead, he granted the body to Joseph of Arimathea

Our final reflection for Holy Week considers The Descent from the Cross (Anon, copy of Daniele da Volterra c. 1509-66).

These reflections for Holy Week, by the Revd Professor Sarah Foot, Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Oxford, are based on paintings in the collection of Christ Church, Oxford.
