Synopsis: This book is an exploration of modern visual art as a ""locus theologicus"". The author's guiding interest is to demonstrate that the work of art, the visual image, like the written word, is and can be used as a challenging and relevant source in theology. It is an extensive, pioneering study of the work and life of ten leading modern Irish painters from a theological perspective: Mainie Jellett, Jack B. Yeats, Louis le Brocquy, Gerard Dillon, Colin Middleton, Patrick Collins, Tony O'Malley, Patrick Scott, Patrick Graham, and Patrick Hall. ""She has accomplished her project with commendable thoroughness and style... The book is a credit to the publisher, not least because of the quality of the reproductions which are so necessary if the reader is to appreciate the investigations of the author... This is a significant piece of work.""--Irish Theological Quarterly. ""A scholarly book evidencing wide reading and a thoughtful approach to a fascinating subject... A remarkable, unique and interesting contribution to the relationship between art and Christian theology.""--Art Bulletin.

About the Author: Gesa E. Thiesen is associate lecturer at the Milltown Institute and at All Hallows College, Dublin.
