Item description for The Glory of the Lord a Theological Aesthetics, Volume III: Studies in Theological Style : Lay Styles (Balthasar, Hans Urs Von//Glory of the Lord) by Hans Urs Von Balthasar & John Kenneth Riches...
Overview Henri de Lubac has described von Balthasar as 'probably the most cultured man in Europe'. In volumes II and III von Balthasar shows the extraordinary range of his knowledge and expertise in a series of essays designed to illustrate different ways in which theologians have shared their work. What he offers is 'a typology of the relationship between beauty and revelation' which shows 'that there neither has been nor could be any true great and historically fruitful theology which was not expressly conceived and born under the constellation of beauty and grace'. Volume III contains studies of Dante, John of the Cross, Pascal, Hamann, Soloviev, Hopkins and Peguy.
