Art History Periods

Ansell also stated 'rational considerations' as a means to understanding Holy Scripture: If sometimes on the basis of rational considerations we sometimes make a statement which we cannot clearly exhibit in the words of Holy Scripture, or cannot prove by reference to these words, nonetheless in the following way we know by means of Scripture whether the statement ought to be accepted or rejected. Even from this quotation 'necessary reasons' cannot be applied to demonstrate the existence of God. Ansell consistently shows that the application of reason can be given to explain why a thing is not impossible but necessary, but not to resume by reason to understand the cause of truth in itself.

Art History Analysis

The angels in heaven are also looking to God to honor this great and historic event. The heavens seem to open up for everyone to view this symbol of man's connection to God. The dove and the pouring of water over Chrism's head serve as a focal area in the artwork. El Grocer's art displays intense vivid color and extraordinary detail including how loosely the gowns are draped to create an illusion of breath of wind is blowing each article of clothing.

Art and society in fourth-century Britain: villa mosaics in context

The mosaic pavements of Roman Britain are among the most spectacular relics of life in the province. Laid primarily in towns during the 2nd century, they passed to the wealthy villas of the countryside in the 4th century. It is to this later period that the bulk of the figured mosaics belong. Since they presumably represented a considerable capital investment on the part of the villa owners, the choice of designs and subjects can hardly have been entirely arbitrary; the mosaics are thus invaluable documents for understanding the tastes and aspirations of the landed classes of the time. Yet this evidence has been strangely neglected by modern interpreters; the thrust of research has been towards the analysis of regional `styles'...

What is the Story behind Ancient Rome’s Art and Architecture

My driving question explains how Rome invented their art and how they use it to speak to the rest of the world. What stuff they use to make it and what kind of art they make. I care about this because I think it’s really interesting to learn about other countries art, especially ancient art. I really did not know anything about this topic.
