Where does beauty come from? Is it objective or subjective or something in between? Can evil be beautiful? Is the beauty of nature identical to the beauty of the Divine? This course will grapple with these questions and the relationship between theology and philosophy concerning Beauty. By focusing on the performing, literary and visual arts since c1900, both sacred and secular artifacts will be examined for their unique contributions to the complex and enduring questions of humanity.
