This book, the proceedings of the eighth international patristic conference of St Patrick’s College Maynooth, contains fifteen essays by Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican scholars from Russia, Finland, Greece, Poland, Spain, Wales and Ireland, on every aspect of divine beauty. God is Beauty, and thus the source of all beauty. The volume considers the beauty of Christ as the image of the Father, the beauty of human beings who are made in that image, and the beauty of Christ-like lives. The essays span Christian history, from the Bible to the present day, demonstrating once again the enduring relevance of the Church Fathers in every generation.
