The Sacred in Music

£9.99

Available in Stock

Despite the central role of music in religion, academic theology has treated its sacred significance as a peripheral concern. In a provocative exploration of the connections between theology and music theory, Blackwell redresses this balance. Bringing together the perspectives of different Christian traditions, he uses the concept of 'sacramental potential' to show how these two interdependent 'realms of experience veiled in mystery' can work together in worship to place the essence of the divine in human minds.
