Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture: Art Seeking Understanding
October 28, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
The notion of art seeking understanding (ars quaerens intellectum) invites association with the notion of faith seeking understanding (fides quaerens intellectum). Just as faith is a gift of grace that grows toward deeper knowledge, so it seems that art is a gift whose practice leads to a deeper order of understanding. This seems true not only for the person who experiences art, but also for the artist—whether musician, painter, sculptor, or poet.
The 2022 Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture features contributions from across the disciplines, including scholars, artists, and other practitioners, to explore together how art seeks understanding and thus contributes to human flourishing.
