The Theology behind Fra Angelico’s Paintings Event Details
Fra Angelico: The Annunciation.

Presenter: Most Rev Bishop Anthony Fisher OP

Fra Angelico’s exact date of birth is not know, but 1395 up to about 1400 is the accepted estimate.

He was known in Italy as Beato Angelica (the blessed). In 1418 he became a Dominican Friar at the Carmine under his birth name of Guido di Pietro.

He was initially trained as an illuminator working with Benedetto, his older brother. He also nurtured a deep religious love of humanity, and had a sense of humility before God. This devotion to his religion shaped his art and his life.
