Abstract

The annual Winifred E. Weter Faculty Award Lecture for Meritorious Scholarship provides a public platform in which the claims of the liberal arts in the Christian university are espoused. In Priceless, SPU Art History Professor Katie Kresser will examine the mystique of fine art in our postmodern world. She will argue that fine art began as a deeply spiritual and distinctively Christian phenomenon. And she will show that its glamour today is rooted in traces of Christian mystery that have survived since ancient times. In the process, she will recover the original view of art as a spiritual technology meant to draw the soul toward the good and true.
