A Garden of Ideas

to ponder and share

Many of the greatest philosophers…

…from Plato to the present day, have made the connection between Beauty and Truth. God is the source of the Beautiful as he is the source of the True. It is therefore legitimate, and indeed necessary, to seek God in the beauty of His Creation, and in the beauty of the creative gifts that He bestows on great writers, artists and musicians. In other words, the path to Christ is a cultural path, as well as being a philosophical and theological path.  – Joseph Pearce
