Summary "The visual arts, a privileged means of communicating Christian belief for more than a thousand years, were marginalized if not rejected by 16th-century reformers. This volume, containing papers read in a five-part conference held in France, Italy and the USA in 2017, brings together Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Anglican theologians, art historians and artists in an unprecendented ecumenical conversation indispensable for furture dialogue. With its broad range of confessional and methodological viewpoints, it offers an 'agora' experience of faith-based reactions to human creation and communication."--P. [4] of cover.
