This series aims to show how Christian doctrine can be explored and expounded through the arts, especially the visual and musical arts. It is not primarily a series in the arts, but a one in theology--theology pursued in an artistic way. The listener will discover that the arts have a unique and irreplaceable part to play in the growth of Christian wisdom: difficult and unfamiliar themes are brought to the light and made clearer, and familiar themes opened up in novel and exciting ways. Lectures include:

  • Hearing the Music You Never Would Have Known to Listen For
  • Theology of the Arts (2.5 Lectures)
  • A Presence Seen Through Icons
  • Through Poetry (Gerard Manley Hopkins): Creation
  • Living (in) Waves - Through Music: Hope
  • Thinking Together - Through Sound and Music
  • Facing Christ/Moving Images
  • The Improvising Body
