DONOSO A., Jaime. Una teología para las artes. Teol. vida [online]. 2002, vol.43, n.1, pp.45-52. ISSN 0049-3449.

ABSTRACT Starting from theory on the origins of music and other arts, the author discloses the need of a special language, different from the everyday language, to come in contact with the supernatural order. The first song of man is, in turn, a magic formula of enchantment. Later on the artist claims for his rights of invention by means of norms that regulate his creation. Through history, the arts became autonomous from their original relation with the rite, making it more evident the presence of an individual creator; of his search, and of his Work as a product-symbol, each aspect bearing its own 'goodness'. The creative faculties of man as a reflection of the Divine creation. The Work as the human manifestation of coming back to his origins. The human invention is an illusion: the human act of creation is a process of discovery and conquer of what underlies in potency in matter. In the art we can find an integration of matter and spirit: the 'sacramental' possibility of matter. The case of the agnostic and the believing artist. The case of Johann Sebastian Bach
