This collection of essays by distinguished authors explores the present-day field of theological aesthetics: from von Balthasar's contribution and parallel developments to correctives and alternatives to his approach. A tribute to von Balthasar's own project expands into a dialogue with ancient and medieval traditions in search of revelatory aesthetics. The contributors outline challenges to his approach (including Protestant perspectives) and introduce new ways of viewing the field of theological aesthetics, which ultimately opens up to the idea of concrete cultural contexts and practical human needs determining the use of the arts and aesthetic sensibilities in theology.

In the spring of 1902, when the back-to-the-land movement was at its height, an exodus began to Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds. East End London workmen - jewellers, silversmiths, enamellers, cavers, modellers, blacksmiths, cabinet-makers, book-binders and printers - fled from the rushed and crowded life of the big city to a rural idyll of craftsmanship and husbandry which was, at the time, all good socialists' dream. This extraordinary idealistic movement was to have a lasting impact not only on the lives of the 150 London immigrants and their leader, the architect, Charles Robert Ashbee, but also on the nature of the little town they occupied. The Guild of Handicraft had been formed in Whitechapel in 1888. It blended an attitude to art, design and manufacture with a view of how society might be changed for the better. This book traces its fortunes and misfortunes, hilarious and grave, and the many eccentrics, idealists and men of letters and the arts who were involved, including William Morris, Roger Fry, Mrs Patrick Campbell, Edward Carpenter, Holman Hunt, Frank Lloyd Wright, Lowes Dickinson and Sidney and Beatrice Webb. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, Fiona MacCarthy's account of this attempt to resolve the dilemma faced by artists and craftsmen working in a mass-produced society, documents one delightful and intriguing experiment in utopian social history.

"Dedicated to the ordinary people who give New Orleans its vibrant culture, Raised to the Trade: Creole Building Arts of New Orleans examines the artistry of the carpenters, masons, plasterers, and ironworkers who give the city its unique architectural style. The book seeks to recognize the freemen of color whose work literally built the city of New Orleans. Using their resourcefulness, talent, and artistry, these skilled craftsmen transformed two-dimensional designs into beautiful and habitable spaces. Often overlooked, their influence had an important and profound effect on New Orleans culture. The essays that make up the book include photographs, interviews, and quotes from the craftsmen who made the city beautiful. Personal stories gained through one-on-one interviews with contemporary craftsmen reveal the human facet inherent, though often forgotten, in skilled trades. The book?s essayists examine different topics, ranging from a study of European and African influences on Creole craftsmen to the correlation between music making and building construction. The New Orleans Museum of Art aspires to inspire in people of all ages and backgrounds wonder, love, and interest in the fine arts. It contains over 40,000 objects and has successfully hosted international exhibitions such as Treasures of Tutankhamun and Degas and New Orleans . Raised to the Trade: Creole Building Arts of New Orleans is a reflection of an exhibit of the same name presented by the museum. The book allows readers to bring the exhibit into their homes and enjoy the works of Creole craftsmen as often as they wish." -- books.google.com.
