Peter and John Running to the Tomb


In the following video we look to the empty tomb and take as our inspiration the Swiss painter Eugene Burnand’s 1898 work ‘The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Sepulchre on the Morning of the Resurrection’.

The contributors in this video are London-based gallery guide Lynne Hanley for a critical assessment of Bernand’s piece. Then, to offer the Priest’s Perspective, we hear from the knowledgeable and engaging Father Christopher Whitehead.
