Manifesto of the Seminar
· That music and theology need not be viewed in isolation and that there is much to gain from the conversation between the two disciplines
Themes may include
· composition, from plainchant and Renaissance to contemporary; a focus on any one composer or group of composers; relationship of music and text; theological musicology
· liturgy and worship, such as music and emotions in worship; music and (or as) preaching; the Holy Spirit in musical worship; music in the Bible; instruments in worship; the relationship between secular and sacred
· the broad subject of Theology and the Arts, including apologetics, metaphor, faith and the creation of art or theological notions of beauty
