Aesthetics and The Passion

Finally, aesthetics has returned to the center stage of Christian debate, thanks to Mel. A Washington Post art critic has written the first article I've read in a major paper that acknowledges how theology and aesthetics have always been joined at the hip. It drives me nuts how Christians rarely discuss aesthetics as anything more than a matter of taste or style. The article also makes a good case for Counter-Reformation aesthetics.
