Calvin and the Visual Arts: Pure Vision or Blind Spot?

The sixteenth-century reformer John Calvin is not generally know for his enthusiasm for the visual arts. Yet he widely praised the arts in general as good gifts of God's creation for the common good and enjoyment of all. In this 500th anniversary year of the Reformation, this lecture will take a closer look at Calvin's comments on the arts in his Institutes of the Christian Religion and consider what may still be of value.

Art Needs No Justification

Hans Rookmaaker

Art Needs No Justification Part 1

What is the status of art within the Christian worldview? Is it a superfluous extra? Is it secondary to 'spiritual' things? Does it need to be justified by being an evangelistic witness? In this key lecture Dr Rookmaaker, professor of art history, defends the truth that within the Christian worldview art needs no justification but is an essential expression of our created humanness.
