Sacred and Profane Beauty:The Holy in Art

van der Leeuw, Gerardus

Description

Gerardus van der Leeuw was one of the first to attempt a rapprochement between theology and the arts, and his influence continues to be felt in what is now a burgeoning field. Sacred and Profane Beauty is the fullest expression of his pursuit of a theological aesthetics, surveying religion's relationship to all the arts — dance, drama, literature, painting, sculpture, architecture, and music. This edition makes this seminal work, first published in Dutch in 1932, newly available. A new foreword by Diane Apostolos-Cappadona analyzes the continuing relevance of van der Leeuw's thought.
