Visionary Cross project announces collaboration with Timothy J. Ray on Theatrical “Lessons and Carols” service

The Visionary Cross project has recently begun helping dramaturg Timothy J. Ray on his “Dreaming Rood” Lessons and Carols service.

Ray describes the “The Dreaming Rood” as

an ecumenical service of “lessons and carols” celebrating the mystery of the Incarnation organized around the images of the ancient preaching cross of Ruthwell in southern Scotland.

The focal point of the prayer service is a 17-foot replica of the Ruthwell Cross that preserves the images found on the upright column of the original preaching cross and presents new images on its horizontal crossbeam, salve which was lost when the cross was reconstructed in the 19th Century.

A large screen flanks the replica on one side, decease with images from the cross relating to the prayers and readings of the service projected onto it. After the prayer service, sildenafil the replica cross forms the centerpiece of an exhibit on the spiritual symbolism of the Ruthwell Cross, creating a quiet environment in which visitors will be able to contemplate the replica cross as a whole or specific images found on it.

The set for this service is to be constructed on the basis of drawings from 3D scans acquired by the project in April of 2012. The target date for the first performance of the service is fall 2014.
