Theology in Art: The Tale of Two Michelangelos: Caravaggio and Buonarrot

Tuesday    |    12:00 PM - 12:00 AM (30/07/2019) , Duration: 24:00 Place: Holy Trinity Catholic Church

For nearly two millennia, the Church has communicated the mysteries of the Faith through the transcendentals of beauty, truth and goodness. Visual art, such as that produced by Renaissance and Baroque masters, were crucial in catechizing generations of the faithful by capturing the imagination with beauty in order to communicate dogmatic truth and the moral goodness it requires. Not only were Michelangelo Caravaggio and Michelangelo Buonarroti technical masters of artistic form - their art was deeply theological. Both artists had a firm grasp of the Faith and communicated it in ways not always easily discerned by the modern eye.
