Biblical or Art?
« on: 13/06/2016 05:19:00 »
Are people's perceptions of what things like angels, heaven, hell, et cetera, are like based more on art than scripture?

In a way, yes.
Our conception of pretty much all things biblical stems from the conception of God, Eden, Moses, the ark, heaven and hell as interpreted by the classical masters such as Michelangelo, Titian, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Perhaps we just follow where others lead.
