  Religion and Art: The Resonance between Religious and Aesthetic Experience  (RS-655)
Winter/Spring 2005

This course will bring theories of religious and aesthetic experience together with an examination of how religious practice and artistic practice are both, ultimately, articulations of faith. Readings examining the theories and the histories of religious experience (from Kant and Scheleirmacher to Neibhur, Taylor and Bryson) will be combined with an examination of the work of a number of contemporary artists. Central to the course will be understanding that religious and artistic practices are rigorous and exacting. Visits to museums, galleries and artistsí studios will be critical parts of the course.  

Meeting Day, Time and Dates: 
Wednesdays 4:30-6:50 p.m. beginning February 2nd and ending May 4

Stephen Holmes
Adjunct Professor of Religion and Society and Director of Visual Arts, Real Art Ways, Hartford
