Ratzinger: On Theologians and the Appreciation of Beauty

The following quotation came to my attention today.

A theologian who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they necessarily are reflected in his theology."

-- Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, The Ratzinger Report (p. 130)
