Mission Statement

Noting the historical bonding between visual art and worship, the Visual Art and Liturgy Seminar seeks to promote research and discussion regarding the current use the visual arts within the worship setting. The significance of the presence or absence of the visual arts is examined by looking at specific ritual centers and objects. The group will also focus on the socio-liturgical context with its effect on the creation and reception of art used in worship.
