As I described last week, praying with sacred art is not difficult if it is practiced regularly, and if the art is well chosen. Some holy images are created so as to promote good prayer, by artists who understand deeply what prayer is and how visual imagery can nourish it. In this article, I will consider how artists working within the three liturgical traditions of the Church – the iconographic, the Gothic and the Baroque – have employed the visual vocabulary of style to this end. I should point out that this analysis is my own. I cannot cite accounts
