Art and religion have always been closely connected, and they have exerted on each other an influence which not only gives scope for a variety of opinion, but opens regions of inviting speculation on some of the rarest qualities and energies of the human spirit. In Christ on Parnassus, Forsyth broadly traces the progress of art under the influence of religion in certain phases of its existence. He first deals with Hellenic art and religion, then with Hebrew art and Religion, then with the growth and nature of Christian art, and then with the intrinsic bearing of Christianity on art—their natural relations rather than their past history. Forsyth also discusses architecture, music, and poetry.
