The recent fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris seems to have renewed interest in religious art and architecture. So, that’s the focus of this week’s episode of Truth in Charity. Hear Bishop Rhoades explain the purpose of religious art, how it should go beyond function and cause us to think about the eternal and help us lift our hearts up to the Lord.

Then Bishop offers his definition of beauty and how there’s a revival of classical church architecture that’s centered right here in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. Then he’ll walk us through the history and evolution of Church art and architecture. Starting with the second century …going through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance period, and finally today’s more abstract, modernist design.

Truth in Charity is brought to you in part by Notre Dame Federal Credit Union.
