The Beauty of Holiness

And the Holiness of Beauty

“Beauty will save the world,” said Dostoyevsky. In this book, Fr John Saward presents a study of two ways in which the saving beauty of Christ shines upon the world: in the lives of His saints, and in the works of Christian art – “the beauty of holiness and the holiness of beauty.” This unique and unprecedented theological meditation centres on several works of art of the Dominican blessed, Fra Angelico. Drawing on the wisdom of the Church’s Fathers and Doctors, Saward has written a book not on art history, but on the attractive radiance of Catholic truth. Its goal is to help Christians grow in wonder at the glory of Divine Revelation.
