Did Jesus die on the cross? An enquiry into images of the crucifixion

A lecture by Duncan Geddes



The story of Christ's crucifixion is based on a few verses in the Gospels and retold in so many different ways in paintings, music and literature that it is hard to find out what really happened.  A medical analysis is one way of trying to find out.
