Art, Sacrilege and the Glorious Flesh

All bad art is sacrilege; it is the torturing of matter into ugly and unnatural forms, and a treason against the divine beauty. All jerry-building or dishonest workmanship is sacrilege; it is introducing a lie into the body of Christ. And every sin against society is sacrilege, because we are all members one of another, in that material body which is the body of the living God.” Dorothy Sayers

"A sure mark of Catholic Christianity is the honouring of the ‘holy and glorious flesh’, and indeed of all material things, because they are sacraments and symbols of the Divine glory.” Dorothy Sayers
