The Beauty of God's Presence in the Fathers of the Church

The Proceedings of the Eighth International Patristic Conference, Maynooth, 2012

Edited by: Janet Elaine Rutherford

This book contains the proceedings of the eighth international patristic conference at St. Patrick's College, Maynooth. It includes 15 essays - by Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican scholars from Russia, Finland, Greece, Poland, Spain, Wales, and Ireland - on every aspect of divine beauty. God is Beauty, and thus the source of all beauty. The book considers the beauty of Christ as the image of the Father, the beauty of human beings who are made in that image, and the beauty of Christ-like lives. The essays span Christian history, from the Bible to the present day, demonstrating once again the enduring relevance of the Church fathers in every generation.
