Living with Christian Art for InspirationWritten by Rosana Hart
Christian art is wonderful for inspiring us. Cathedrals and churches, paintings, music, performances, and sculpture have been created for centuries. Now, in our own time, photography, mixed media, and posters are widely available too.
All these forms of Christian art have shaped our understanding of great stories of Bible. From simple Christmas carols we learned as children to transcendent glory of Handel's Messiah, Christian music uplifts us. From Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel to Salvador Dali's Last Supper, Christian paintings give us something to look at and contemplate. A few minutes spent looking at a piece of art can help center us before a time of quiet prayer.
There is something for everyone, with whatever taste in art, with whatever favorite themes. You could spend a lifetime just delving into pictures of Christ himself, as a child and as an adult. Other specific themes include garden of Eden, angels, crucifixion, last supper, saints, and other Christian figures.
