Rowan Williams explores the borderlands between theology, art and literature in order to pioneer a new theological expression of grace and human creativity.
Profoundly influenced by some of the most original and creative minds in the recent Catholic tradition (Jacques Maritain, the artist Eric Gill and the poet and painter David Jones), he explores a new aesthetic and the concept of an artwork as a structure in itself and not as a 'reproduction'. The sign or symbol, whether verbal or material, is a necessary vehicle of meaning and not an illustration of it, calling not for reduction or explanation but response.
In Dr. Williams' development of his theme he discusses modern philosophy (Wittgenstein's aesthetics) but also examines modern art, the work of the American writer Flannery O'Connor and the writings of the poet and artist David Jones on art and sacrament and the underlying theology of artistic production.
