VISUAL THEOLOGY


Anonymous (Germany), Saint Luke the Evangelist ■ St. Luke is seated at a lectern writing his Gospel, with his symbol, a winged ox, emerging from a cloud above. The abstract, linear quality of the drapery, with its zigzag folds, is characteristic of 11th-century style. This book-cover plaque originally would have been seen with plaques of the other three Evangelists, serving as "author portraits" for the Gospel texts. It may have been made in the same workshop as the ivories on the cover of the Mondsee Gospels ■

Y entonces uno se queda con la Iglesia, que me ofrece lo único que debe ofrecerme la Iglesia: el conocimiento de que ya estamos salvados –porque esa es la primera misión de la Iglesia, el anunciar la salvación gracias a Jesucristo- y el camino para alcanzar la alegría, pero sin exclusividades de buen pastor, a través de esa maravilla que es la confesión y los sacramentos. La Iglesia, sin partecitas.
