Grace as an Aesthetic Concept

ICH3758HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2010  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

During the Renaissance, a notion of grace served as the central critical concept for understanding art, and the achievement of grace in art was taken to be the highest artistic ideal. The course willl examine the concept of grace within its theological, philosophical, and art theoretical contexts in an effort to understand more completely how art was thought to function in the early modern period. It will also consider the place of grace in the development of the aesthetics tradition.
