The Portal of Beauty

Towards a Theology of Aesthetics
  • By Bruno Forte
$25.49
($30.00)
A famous Italian theologian's eloquent reflections on beauty and God. 

"Beauty is an event: it happens when the Whole, the All, offers itself to us in the fragment, when the Infinite makes itself little." This is how Bruno Forte describes the long-held Christian tradition that sees God as the source of all beauty.

In The Portal of Beauty, Forte examines the deep, though not always obvious, contribution of theological thought - from the minds of such luminaries as Augustine, Aquinas, Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, Balthasar, and Evdokimov - to our understanding and experience of beauty. 

The Portal of Beauty is an erudite, moving, and deeply-felt study by the most famous Italian theologian in Italy on the nature of beauty and how it can lead us to a greater understanding of and communion with the divine.
