If you have ever wondered if there is any rhyme or reason to the layout of the statues in the reredos, this is the class for you. You’ve probably suspected the layout isn’t random, but you might not know how thoughtful and careful the design appears to be, especially if you examine it from a theological and scriptural perspective. Though sadly we have only limited correspondence and other records regarding the intentions of its designers and sculptors, there is much that can be pieced together through close examination and study.
