This subject addresses the role of the arts as integral to Christian theology and life, both in classical and popular understanding, by exploring the ways in which theology, the arts and film mutually interpret each other to give a broader understanding of human life and of God.
Attention is given to the role in theology, worship, and discipleship of the verbal, visual, performing and fine arts. Selected genres including, for example, literature, poetry, painting, sculpture, music, dance/mime, drama/theatre, architecture, photography and film are addressed in-depth. The relationships between aesthetics and religious experience in the context of worship and discipleship, and the role of media and culture in the Christian Church will also be addressed.
This Summer, you can learn about art and film within the framework of Christian theology by auditing this subject. Instead of weekly classes, this subject will be taught on campus by Rev’d Dr Ockert Meyer at St Mark’s in a three-day intensive session from 14 to 16 January 2019. You will have to attend all days of this intensive session to complete the course. Each day starts at 8:30am and finishes at 5:00pm.
As an Auditing student, you get to sit in and participate in the intensives without needing to complete assignments. (You will therefore also receive no credit towards other awards.) You will also get access to St Mark’s theological library resources; a one-year membership worth $70 is included in the audit fee! Best of all, there are no entry requirements to participate.

The cost of auditing this subject is $240.
