Redeeming beauty soundings in sacral aesthetics by Aidan Nichols ( )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Redeeming Beauty explores the richness of orthodox Christian tradition, both Western and Eastern, in matters of 'sacral aesthetics' - a term used to denote the foundations, production and experience of religiously relevant beauty. Aidan Nichols investigates five principal themes: the foundation of beauty in the natural order through divine creative action; explicitly 'evangelical' beauty as a quality of biblical revelation and notably at its climax in Christ; the legitimacy of making and venerating artworks; qualities of the self in relation to objective presentation of the religiously beautif
The thought of Pope Benedict XVI an introduction to the theology of Joseph Ratzinger by Aidan Nichols ( )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nichols' timely book is the first full-scale investigation of Joseph Ratzinger's theology in its development from the 1950s to present day. This new edition provides an amplification of the existing chapters and two wholly new chapters devoted to Ratzinger's writings on Judaism, Islam, and other religions, as well as secularization and the future of Europe
Divine fruitfulness a guide through Balthasar's theology beyond the trilogy by Aidan Nichols ( )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hans Urs von Balthasar is emerging as a colossus of twentieth-century theology. More and more of his works are being translated. € But as yet he is mainly known only through his great multi-volume trilogy 'Glory', 'Theo-Drama' and Theo-Logic'. € Aidan Nichols has treated each part of the trilogy and the€early works€in his widely acclaimed 'Introduction to Hans Urs von Balthasar'. € In this final volume he explores all von Balthasar's€later works. Many of these works are extremely important, although several are as yet untranslated and several as yet almost unknown
The poet as believer a theological study of Paul Claudel by Aidan Nichols ( )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). His writing combines cosmology and history, Bible and metaphysics, liturgy and the drama of human personality. Aidan Nichols' study demonstrates how Claudel's oeuvre, which is not only poetry but theatre and prose including biblical commentaries, constitutes a rich resource for constructive doctrine, liturgical preaching, and theological reflection
Lost in wonder essays on liturgy and the arts by Aidan Nichols ( )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the liturgy as the manifestation by cultic signs of Christian revelation, the 'setting' of the Liturgy in terms of architectural space, iconography and music, and the poetic response which the revelation the liturgy carries can produce. Nichols makes the case for Christianity's capacity to inspire high culture - both in principle and through well-chosen historical examples which draw on the best in Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy and Anglicanism
Discovering Aquinas : an introduction to his life, work, and influence by Aidan Nichols ( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thomas Aquinas is one the great figures of the Christian church, and his ideas continue to have a powerful effect on theologians and contemporary thinkers from very different backgrounds and traditions. In Discovering Aquinas Aidan Nichols offers a lively and authoritative introduction to the life, thought, and ongoing influence of this singular churchman. After a lengthy period of declining interest in Aquinas, we are now witnessing a Thomistic renaissance, including a renewed appreciation for the way his work brings together philosophy, theology, spirituality, revelation, and ethics. After first introducing the compelling facts of Aquinas's life in relation to his own time, Nichols explores the major facets of Aquinas's thought, showing not only its historical importance but also why so many today now see it as a vital partner in current debates about the future of Christianity

Scribe of the kingdom. essays on theology and culture by Aidan Nichols ( )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aidan Nichols opens his major two-colume study of theology and culture with a powerful statement of the 'intelligent conservatism' which he sees, not as one way of being Catholic among others, but as the very teaching of Jesus Christ. The 'intelligent conservative' is, indeed, the 'scribe of the Kingdom' described in our Lord's parable; 'Every scribe who has bene trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a housekeeper who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old'. (Mt 13:52.) Fr Nichols distinguishes three elements in thsi approach. First, it combines openned to the new with fide
