Item description for Through the Rose Window: Art, Myth and the Religious Imagination by John F. Hayward & Kenneth A. Olliff...
Religion, itself a human art, is presented as an invention of the human imagination rather than a gift from a divine source. Like religion, the arts express depths that are not readily available for rational analysis yet are deeply felt in human experience. In these essays, Hayward samples literature, music and the visual arts to demonstrate how the arts reveal "the true music of life."

Reviews - What do customers think about Through the Rose Window: Art, Myth and the Religious Imagination?
A masterfully written and scholarly study May 17, 2002
Through The Rose Window: Art, Myth And The Religious Imagination by John F. Hayward (Minister, First Unitarian Church, Columbus, Ohio, and Editor of "The Journal of Liberal Religion") is a masterfully written and scholarly study of the intersection between expressions of the human spirit and the profound, life-changing impact of deep religious faith. Fourteen essays study the importance of imagination in religion, in meaningful and perhaps somewhat provocative manner. A profound and thoughtful analysis, through The Rose Window is very highly recommended reading for students of the interrelationship of religion, art, mythology, and spiritual expression.
