Poetica e cristianesimo

Il ritorno
a casa

Mimesi, Verità, Fiction

The Poetics & Christianity Project is an international forum for studying the intersection of artistic culture and expressions of religious faith, with a special emphasis on narrative and dramatic arts. It offers a meeting place for scholars and artists of diverse fields of expertise.

The Conference will provide an occasion for scholars, academics and artists to reflect not only on Flannery O’Connor and her work but also on the issues that both raise, such as

• the relationship of reason to art and faith,
• the meaning of evil,
• violence and the grotesque,
• the artistic use of humor,
• moral vision in narrative art, and
• the various ways that Christian faith illuminates and is reflected in literature, music, film, sculpture and painting.

The rich combination of keen intelligence, literary art and Christian faith was central to the work of American short-story writer and novelist Flannery O’Connor (1925-1964).
