· Access to a wide variety of source material with additional benefit of guiding commentary from a respected scholar in the area
· Covers material typical of an undergraduate course in Theological Aesthetics and so will map directly onto courses
· A useful reference for academics and lecturers seeking quick answers to questions, or quotations - set out in chronological order
The study of theological aesthetics continues to increase and this textbook serves as an ideal undergraduate companion guide to such courses. The editor has carefully selected the most relevant and timely pieces to include in this comprehensive compilation of articles and extracts. A chronological organisation of the texts means coverage is from The Early Church, through to the twentieth century.
The outlook is inclusive in approach, diverse and ecumenical, taking gender and ethnicity into account, as well as reflecting the traditional approaches of the patristic period for example. Each period of discussion is introduced and contextualized by the editor, creating a valuable guide to readers new - and old - to the texts.
