Description

AVAILABLE AS AN EBOOK ONLY

The Catholic Church, with its particular understanding of how art should relate to faith and spirituality, has commissioned and inspired some of the most beautiful works of art the world has ever seen. This booklet goes to the root of what good devotional art is, how it should work, and the feelings it should inspire. It also explores the effect that different styles of Christian devotional art have had on modern and contemporary art, and why the estrangement of the Church from the artistic world has left both sides much the poorer.
