3 Christs: Art for Resistance

RoualtAlbert Camus and Thomas Merton: both had a lot to say about resistance. Camus famously posed a challenge to Christians to speak out with honesty and clarity against injustice. Merton, Trappist monk and prolific author, toward the end of his life seemed to be developing a “theology of love”which he also characterized as a “theology of resistance.” Through selected paintings of Marc Chagall, Georges Rouault, and Salvador Dali, we have contemplative imagery that can prepare us for new perspectives on resistance to injustice from a humanist Christian point of view.
