Laurie Schneider Adams, “Art Across Time,” Vol II, 4th ed.
This Discussion will be a debate. Some of you are Protestant and art serves the purposes of your secular and religious life. Art is different for the Protestant North. Some of you are Catholic. There is a movement known as the Counter-Reformation and Catholics are fighting back with their art.
Your assignment includes finding information from your textbook and researching on the Web. Give us a little history of what is going on in your country and culture. Argue your side—why is your art superior? This will mean arguing your religion, to some degree, but be certain you have it pertain to the use and purpose of art. Give us an illustration: page number and title from the text and/or a site to visit with an image. Or, if you are able, attach the image.
Be sure to cite your sources. The divisions are as follows: If your Birthday falls in the first half of the year (January through June), your assignment is to cover the Protestant side of the argument. This is not always according to country because some countries were divided in their loyalties. If your Birthday falls in the second half of the year (July through December), your assignment is to cover the Catholic side.
