How Catholic Art Saved the Faith: The Triumph of Beauty and Truth in Counter-Reformation Art

by Elizabeth Lev

More than 500 years after the Reformation, Elizabeth Lev shows how the Catholic Church responded to this turbulent age by finding an artistic voice to proclaim Truth through beauty. Exploring the works of Bernini, Caravaggio, Michelangelo and countless other Counter-Reformation artists, Dr. Lev shows how Catholic art in the 16th and 17th centuries was designed to confront challenges raised by the Reformation with soothing and persuasive voice of art.
