Beauty and God's Existence

Entry 0197: Beauty and the Existence of God

"The beauty that perdures in the midst of the world's ceaseless becoming excites in the soul a longing for the infinite beauty that it reflects." 

(David Bentley Hart, "The Mirror of the Infinite: Gregory of Nyssa on the Vestigia Trinitatis," in Re-Thinking Gregory of Nyssa, ed. Sarah Coakley (Oxford: Blackwell, 2003), 118).
