Prax: I’m somewhat more with Gunter on the subject of Esmeralda and Quasimodo! Perhaps the conundrum can be resolved a bit by applying theories of ‘beauty’ (or, more accurately, ‘the beautiful’) to objects (inc. buildings and furnishings), but not to persons- or, to take a Thomist approach, beauty in the person is an ‘accidental’, but the ‘substantial’ is something else altogether!
Loved that series on the Texan churches in NLM; perhaps a bit polychromatic for my taste (in terms of statuary certainly), but the incidental stencilling and the general proportions of the buidings are exquisite – what remarkable survivals.
