Conference | Sacred Arts in North American Contexts

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

Part of The Arts and Ecumenism: What Theology Risks in Artistic Creation, a 5-part symposium hosted by the Institut Catholique, Paris; Faculté de Théologie Protestante, Université de Strasbourg; Facoltà Teologica dell’Italia Centrale e Opera de Santa Maria del Fiore, Firenze; the ISM; and the Community of Jesus, Orleans, Massachusetts.

The myriad arrays of religious traditions in North America have given rise to an equally diverse range of artistic expressions. These are informed by practices shaped by individuals and communities past and present, often calling notions of normatively, canon, and authority into question.

This Yale session of our symposium lays out a series of case studies that demonstrate a range of these practices, both within and without specific liturgical contexts. We set these in close conversation with the work done by our colleagues in Paris, Strasbourg, and Florence, and look forward to a lively exchange of ideas.
