Show Notes

Rebekah Ann Lamb is Lecturer in Theology, Imagination, and the Arts at the University of St. Andrews. Her work explores intersections between theology, visual arts, and literature, and she has additional interests in Biblical Studies, Dante, and Christian Personalism, which asserts the ultimate value of persons, human and divine. We speak with her today about theological aesthetics, asking what theology and the arts bring to each other, and focus particularly on the work of the Canadian Catholic artist and novelist Michael D. O’Brien.
