About The Book
Putting Art (Back) in Its Place takes readers on an astounding journey through the world of Christian art in medieval and Renaissance Italy.
Today’s Christian artists work with the museum and the gallery in mind, and our art is trapped behind signs commanding do not touch. Christian discussions of contemporary art focus attention on artists as lone geniuses, disconnected from our churches and our daily lives. It wasn’t always this way. For centuries, works of art were commissioned and created to tell stories, inspire faith, and unify communities in their daily rhythms of work and worship.
In medieval and Renaissance Italy art filled the streets, the churches, the businesses, and the halls of government. The whole body of Christ played a part in the creation and use of art that proclaimed the work of Jesus and his people in the world through powerful illustration of the stories that mean the most to the life of the church. Italian art brought communities together in rich and joyful celebrations of the Christian life.
In order for Christians today to foster a vibrant culture of the arts, we must restore and cultivate active and respectful relationships among artists, patrons, scholars, communities, and the art they create. Using the masterworks of Italian art as a map for the return to a flourishing of the arts, Putting Art (Back) in Its Place allows us to think historically about the vibrant role that the visual arts have played — and can play again — in the life and mission of the church.
