The Beautiful Things, Episode 4: What is Art?


The Trinity: Andrei Rublev

In this episode of The Beautiful Things host Stephen Heiner and special guest Bishop Donald Sanborn examine what St. Augustine and St. Thomas define as art and examine why the beauty apprehended in art must appeal to the mind first and foremost.

They then go on to examine four pieces of art, using this criteria. You can pull them up and examine them while they are discussed.
