The Glory of the Lord Seeing the Form A Theological Aesthetics

by Hans Urs von Balthasar, Joseph Fessio

The Glory of the Lord Seeing the Form A Theological Aesthetics Synopsis

This text opens with a critical review of developments in Protestant and Catholic theology since the Reformation which have led to the steady neglect of aesthetics in Christian theology. Then, von Balthasar turns to the central theme of the volume, the question of theological knowledge. He re-examines the nature of Christian believing, drawing widely on such theological figures as Anselm, Pascal and Newman.
