Abstract

What do our aesthetic resources say about how we view ourselves as Christian community, our connection to past, present and future, and our relationship and responsibility to the world? Do our artistic resources accurately portray something of the human condition which our sense of mission calls us into? Miguel de Unamuno, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and John Macmurray are three male, European theologians who were concerned with the problem of impersonality which revealed itself in the critical transformations of 20th century society. This dissertation seeks to consider their engagement with theology and the arts and how Christian community is perceived in this engagement.
