What is art for, where does it come from, and what is the artist’s relationship with her or his creation? Sister Anselma Scollard takes an uncompromising view in her book of essays. Sculptor, art historian and member of an enclosed Benedictine community, Sister Anselma thinks that a valid work of art can only be made when the body and the soul are in harmony.
