About the Program
Through her piety and her visions, Juliana of Cornillon (1192/93-1258) conceived of a new feast devoted to the Eucharist, soon to become the universally observed feast of Corpus Christi. Juliana's theological insight and spirituality is embodied in the texts and melodies she composed, together with her male collaborator, for the first celebrations of this feast in her native Liège (Belgium). The remarkable story of the feast's founding and first celebration come to life in this talk through the images and sounds of Juliana's music
