Aims/Description: This module explores the relationship between liturgy, sacraments and various forms of cultural expression, including literature, art and architecture, both historically and in the present day. The unit will introduce students to themes relating to human culture and the arts, in order to begin an examination of their role in liturgical development, perception and understanding, and will critically examine the interplay between worship and the arts.
