Module 4 (Online)
Faith in Art: Transcendence and Embodiment
This course will compare two important strands in theological aesthetics, the first approaching art as a bridge to the spiritual and transcendence, the other as an imaginative representation of the created world and lived human experience. The course will explore what each tradition can learn from the other with a view towards a deepened understanding of the place of faith in religious and non-religious art, with special attention to contemporary art and devotional practice.
Course Leader: Dr Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin
