Many Christian theologians have associated beauty, both in nature and art, with the Holy Spirit. They include early Fathers like Irenaeus and Clement of Alexandria, and later writers like John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Sergious Bulgakov and Hans Urs von Balthasar. This book investigates what they said and why. In doig so, it also serves as an introduction to the whole area of theological aesthetics. Besides exploring the connection made between the Holy Spirit and beauty, it ranges more widely by considering topics such as divine glory, inspiration, and the eschatological character of beauty. It's discussions bring together two areas of lively interest in contemporary Christianity: the theology of the Holy Spirit and theological aesthetics.Patrick Shery is Professor of Philosophical Theology emeritus at Lancaster University.
