About Donna

DonnaTWMeyerProfessor Donna L. Sadler graduated from Boston University and received her M.A. and Ph.D. from Indiana University. Her first book, Reading the Reverse Façade of Reims Cathedral: Royalty and Ritual in Thirteenth-Century France, focused on a sculptural program aimed at teaching French kings to be just rulers. The topic of her Gladden lecture, which is also the subject of the book she is completing titled, Stone, Flesh, Spirit: The Entombment of Christ in late Medieval Burgundy, examines the mimetic nature of medieval piety in a series of deeply moving representations of Christ’s entombment from the 15th and 16th  centuries in France.
