Art is God’s idea

Christianity and Art




University of Wales Lampeter, The Bible and the Visual Imagination Research Centre of the Theology and Religious Studies Department. The Research Centre brings together staff and students interested in the visual representation of biblical narrative. The distinctive aims of the Centre are implied in the title: by Bible, we mean both the Old and New Testament as well as Apocryphal literature, under visual we include not only the traditional fine arts but also popular depictions of scriptural piety, and by the term imagination, we want to draw attention to the artist's creativity, the role of the artistic impulse that gave rise to such creative expressions as well as the role of the reader’s imagination in visualizing biblical characters and scenes. (E)
