Art and the Sacred

(p.141) Chapter 5 Art and the Sacred
Theological Aesthetics

Richard Viladesau (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines ways in which art mediates the value of the sacred or “holy”. The first part deals with art as the expression or mediation of “general” categorical revelation: the encounter with transcendence or with the sacred in human experience in general. The second part considers art in its relation to the “special” categorical revelation that occurs in Christ and is transmitted through the Christian tradition.

Keywords:   theological aesthetics, art, sacred, holy, mediation, transcendence, revelation, Christ
