Willamette University Hallie Ford Museum of Art: Vernacular of the Sacred – Laminae Ex-Voto in Southern Italy

Explore the history of the ex-voto with Professor Kate Wagle in a lecture entitled “Vernacular of the Sacred: Laminae Ex-Voto in Southern Italy”. Professor Wagle is the Associate Dean and Director at the School of Architecture and Allied Arts at the University of Oregon in Portland.

Ex-votos represent a tradition that dates back to ancient times. These objects often take the form of a flat embossed metal sheet that represents either a plea for help to a saint or divinity, or one’s gratitude for an answered prayer.
