ART 531 - Introduction to Theology & the Arts
Why do human beings experience attraction to the fine and performing arts? Why is art such a powerful representative of the human experience, including its experience of the Divine? Introduction to Theology and the Arts presents a history of the integration of belief and artistic creation. In this process, the student will come to understand the role of the imagination as the conduit for aesthetics in human understanding; the role of the arts in social commentary and social justice; and, develop a rudimentary theology of the arts.
