Theology and the Arts

Full Product Description

Richard Viladesau's new book takes a look at an inviting topic that has come into increasing prominence in a number of fields lately--including theology. Theology and the Arts explores, in a timely and engaging manner, several aspects of the relations between theology and aesthetics, in both the pastoral and academic realms. The underlying motif of this work is that beauty is a means of divine revelation, and that art is the human mediation that both enables and limits its revelatory power. Using examples from music, pictorial art and rhetoric, the five chapters explore different aspects of the ways that art enters into theology and theology into art, both in pastoral practice, e.g., liturgical music, sacred art and preaching, and in the area of systematic reflection, where, Viladesau contends, art must be recognized as a genuine theological text. Contains a discography of illustrative musical works and lists of internet sights of sacred art and art history resources - a virtual museum - that will complement the text.
