SANCHEZ CANIZARES, Javier. Theology and Beauty: Searching for the lost union. Veritas [online]. 2011, n.25, pp. 107-117. ISSN 0718-9273. doi: 10.4067/S0718-92732011000200007.
Modernity is epistemologically characterized by the division of knowledge. As a result, Protestant and Catholic Theology have both lacked a unifying vision in their reasoning about God. The acceptance of fragmentation in postmodern culture offers a new epistemological sensibility, which opens up inspiring possibilities for the rediscovery of transcendence. Among these possibilities, the intrinsically dialogical character of Creation aims at the via of beauty as a privileged path that Theology should explore in a descending and, especially, an ascending way.
