Welcome to Windows to the Divine. We are a nonprofit that sponsors educational art exhibitions, symposia, and salons in which we encourage everyone to affirm the special vocation of the artist and to recognize God in the beauty that surrounds us. With the funds we raise through our art events, we support artists, interfaith dialogue, patronage, and philanthropy.
As art patrons and people of faith, we should be aware of the patronage of the Catholic Church and its significant contributions to the history of Western Christian art. In these short videos, you will learn about the important role of the Church in perpetuating the faith through art. You will also learn about the religious, political, and cultural forces from early Christianity to modern times that influenced the evolution of art from sacred to spiritual to secular. Video 1 covers Early Catholic Art to the Protestant Reformation. Video 2 covers the Catholic Counter-Reformation to today. Above all, you will come to appreciate the Catholic vision which contends that the pursuit of beauty is fundamentally the pursuit of God who is the source of all beauty.
