About the Author

Aidan Nichols has written a wealth of books on topics of the Church and the Arts, and of Liturgy, since his first book 'The Art of God Incarnate'.


'...wonderfully interesting...' Art and Christianity 'Nichols mines real gems regarding Christian anthropology, and the role of the poetic imagination in the forging of metaphors, and suggestively traces out the lineaments of an aesthetic which may emerge from being immersed fully into the cult of the church.' Modern Believing 'A good work by a really good theologian.' Catholic Medical Quarterly '... I would recommend this book as a whole for those with sincere interest in liturgics, and individual chapters would certainly be beneficial in undergraduate or graduate classes focused on topics such as church music, ecclesial architecture, or Dante.'
