From Our Editors

It happens all the time. You hear a beautiful piece of music and suddenly experience an inexplicable sensation rising form somewhere deep inside. Or similarly, you might gaze up at the kaleidoscope of colours in a stained glass window and suddenly feel spiritually uplifted. Alejandro Garcià-Rivera contends that religion and beauty go hand in hand in The Community of the Beautiful. The author draws on the work of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Charles Peirce and Josiah Royce to analyze the relationship between religion and aesthetics.
