It would be silly to ignore the works of Michelangelo due to to affiliation with Christianity, seeing as many composers praised here were deeply religious. When I stop appreciating the beauty of of the Sistine Chapel, I'll have to stop appreciating the Quartet for the End of Time, et cetera.
Very true. I thought it might be rejected on the basis of its overt Christianity though.
Old Catholic churches are very beautiful, especially the relationship between Gothic architecture's forms (couldn't think of a better word) and it's icongraphy, to me is, well, divine. The stained glass artwork is so impressive as well. I do enjoy Classical architectural forms more though, the Parthenon of course being the best example.
On a related note, would anyone be able to help me in fixing the fact that no images on this forum are appearing for me? (No embeded images, no emoticons, nothing, I just see words in emoticons place and a blank space where all these works of art are meant to be)
