Typically the anabaptists been known for iconoclasm. Not unlike the calvinists in that respect. But I think that's too much of a baby out with the bathwater approach. So over the years I have drawn much of my theology of beauty and art from Orthodox Christianity. More recently I have been thinking, what if I tried to integrate my thinking here a bit more? What if my aesthetics was more informed by anabaptist principles? When I think about that it occurs to me that one of the functions of anabaptist art should be to subvert idolatry, particularly political idolatry, in whatever way, shape or form it comes.
