The Portal of Beauty
Full Product Description
In the first six chapters, Forte calls as witnesses some of the greatest luminaries of the Church in the East and West: Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Søren Kierkegaard, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Pavel Evdokimov. Forte then moves to a consideration of music as a sacred language and a contemplation of how film can transmit faith through story and icon. Finally, he closes with a moving meditation on the fragility and finitude of the mortal fragments through which divine beauty manifests itself.
The Portal of Beauty is an erudite, moving, and deeply felt study by the most famous Italian theologian in Italy on the nature of beauty and how it can lead us to a greater understanding of and communion with the divine.
Bruno Forte is Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto in Italy.
