Join us as we discuss the philosophical issues raised by setting the story of Jesus Christ to music.
Total runtime 60min
Jesus Christ Superstar is a respected biblical musical with a kick-ass score that endures. What are the philosophical issues raised by setting the story of Jesus Christ to music in this way? In this session, our regular film philosophers Lucy Bolton, John Ó Maoilearca and Catherine Wheatley, discuss turning the gospel into a musical, and overlapping philosophies of religion and cinema, including spectacle, ethics and worship.
