Chant and Art

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This essay attempts to situate the discussion of the relation between tradition and innovation in the context of Orthodox sacred chant in a wide context, taking its cue from the art historian Hans Belting’s notion of images “before the era of art” and progressing through subsequent definitions of sacred art in order to place contemporary creation in an historical context.
