O’Brien: The Holiness of Beauty

“We have lost sight of a keystone that was firmly in place in the culture of classical civilization, one that has been crumbling in the West for a long time and at an accelerated rate since the industrial and technological revolutions. We have lost our sense of the holiness of beauty, our intuition that at some level it reflects back to him who is perfect Beauty.”

– Michael O’Brien, A Landscape with Dragons (p. 35)
