The Demands of Aesthetics Upon Religious Art

Author Melvin Rader

Art has the ability to communicate sacredness that few other methods of expression can duplicate. The author asserts that without art, religion would be inarticulate and that it is natural that many of the world's greatest works of art are religious. However, religious themes don't always translate into good art, and good art isn't always religious. Art and religion should not be confused, but art, as the expression of deepest conviction, can add much to the religious experience.
