When artists feel lonely in the Church

By Thomas V. Mirus ( bio - articles - email ) | May 16, 2023

In this livestream, James Majewski and Thomas Mirus discussed errors artists can fall into in pushing back against a moralistic approach to art found within the Church. Rather than reacting away from rigidity to excessive openness, the mature Catholic artist has to get over himself and be a servant.

Also discussed: The relation between order and surprise in beauty, morality and culture.

Note: the video begins abruptly in the middle of our introductory fundraising campaign pitch. Because of some glitched-out audio, we cut the first 6 minutes or so.
