In Real Prescences, George Steiner examines the manifestations of the "sacred" throughout the canon of Western Art. He considers how the concept of "art" and "sacredness" fit within a Christiam schemata. Unlike other authors, Steiner, does not give easy, facile answers, but interacts deeply and meaingfully with some of the greatest thinkers and artist in Western philosophy, history, and art.
Along with Steiner's book, Madeleine L'Engle's _Walking on Water_ and Dorothy L. Sayer's _The Mind of the Maker_ should be considered essential reads.
