Wed., 13/07/2016, 6:00 pm – Wed., 12/10/2016, 9:00 pm AEST
This subject addresses the role of the arts as integral to Christian theology
and life, both in classical and popular understanding. It explores the ways in
which theology, the arts and film mutually interpret each other to give a
broader understanding of human life and of God. Attention is given to the role
in theology, worship, and discipleship of the verbal, visual, performing and
fine arts. Selected genres include: literature, poetry, painting,
sculpture, music, dance/mime, drama/theatre, architecture, photography and film.
These are addressed in-depth. The relationships between aesthetics and religious
experience in the context of worship and discipleship, and the role of media and
culture in the Christian Church will also be addressed.
