Art and The Protestant Tradition

I haven’t read the book that is the basis for this blog post, but now I really want to buy it.

Seems like today is about art and faith.

Catholic and Orthodox thought is most capable of offering a means to experience creatively modern and contemporary art primarily because they remain believers in art, believers in an aesthetics wrought in the Church, which thus grounds but does not limit the aesthetic outside the Church. This, however, does not mean that Catholics and the Orthodox have good taste simply by virtue of being Catholic and Orthodox. It does mean, however, that they have at hand the theological resources alive in their tradition that makes such taste possible and the theological capacity to participate in modern and contemporary art at the deepest levels.
