Themes[edit]

This page has a list of "major themes", but does not mention Immaculate Conception as a theme, although there is a category Immaculata in Wiki Commons. So, as far as topics go, where do these famous paintings go in Wikipedia?

Virgin Mary - Diego Velazquez.jpg La Inmaculada de Soult, 1678, Bartolomé E. Murillo.jpg Bartolomé Esteban Perez Murillo 021.jpg Maratta.jpg Juan Antonio de Frías y Escalante. Inmaculada Concepción.jpg Piero di Cosimo 057.jpg

Is this a missing theme from the list? Your comments will be appreciated. History2007 (talk) 17:17, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

There probably is more than one. the list is not exhaustive. Hopefully someone will create an Immaculate Conception in Art page to link to. Xandar (talk) 23:17, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
There is now Roman Catholic Marian art, which is surely linked? Johnbod (talk) 23:21, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, I had not added links for that page yet. I will try to get it out of the witness protection program today. Cheers History2007 (talk) 06:47, 8 July 2008 (UTC)


Celtic Art[edit]

This deserves a section in this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.194.143.164 (talk) 21:01, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


Name change[edit]

As this article makes reference to Eastern Catholic art and treats both Eastern and Western traditions, it ought to reflect the name of the main article, Catholic Church. I propose a move to Catholic Art or the Catholic Church and Art or Art in the Catholic Church. But, the reference to "Roman" is problematic in the title.--EastmeetsWest (talk) 21:20, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

You have made similar proposals for the sudden abolition of the term Roman from several places in Wikipedia. Hold on while the project Catholicism discussion continues. History2007 (talk) 22:20, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
The article has coverage of the influence of Othodox art on Western Catholic art, and a few lines on Eastern Catholic art, which it does not try to cover. None of the proposed titles are attractive. Johnbod (talk) 00:37, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
I would not object to Art in the Catholic Church but John is the art expert by far and his opinion should probably be followed. Cheers. History2007 (talk) 20:01, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Catholic Church artCatholic art – I'm not sure, but I suppose this is sufficient and sounds as good or better as an article name for due content. Chicbyaccident (Please notify with {{SUBST:re}} (Talk) 21:38, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose Ambiguous. The article is about "sacred art", not the other (perfectly viable) subject of secular/all art by Catholics. Perhaps it should be "Catholic church art" though. Johnbod (talk) 04:35, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
If so, what about "Catholic Church and art", similarly to other articles on paired subjects? Chicbyaccident (Please notify with {{SUBST:re}} (Talk) 05:10, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
Can you provide examples to validate a precedence for a title such as "Catholic Church and art"? From what I see, the title "Catholic Church and art" is a title that would have a WP:XY issue as a redirect. That title could make readers believe that the article also contains information regarding the ambiguous subject of Art that is in no way related to "Catholic Church".

Yes, he moved it to that and I moved it to the present title. Vague "and" titles are best avoided, and gradually get changed. We have some "Catholic Church and evolution" ones, but that is very different. This is about art by and for the church, as well as their attitude to art. Johnbod (talk) 02:02, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
