Art and Spirituality: The Visual Culture of Christian Faith

Author Doris R. Dant, Author Herman du Toit,

BYU Studies and the BYU Museum of Art announce their joint publication Art and Spirituality: The Visual Culture of Christian Faith. This collection of seventeen articles discusses a variety of topics on the interaction between religion and art.

Each article is an expansion of a presentation given at the BYU "Art, Belief, Meaning: Pious Pictures" symposium in 2006. Contributors discuss:

  • how faith can coexist with modern art
  • how temple architecture symbolizes Christ
  • how and why artists portray Christ in certain familiar ways
  • how Christ has been portrayed in film

and much more. Several articles discuss contemporary Latter-day Saints artists including Brian Kershisnik, Walter Rane, and Ron Richmond; others focus on masters such as Giotto, Caravaggio, and Chagall.

Art enthusiasts will especially enjoy this full-color book--320 pages loaded with 106 illustrations.
