It has been very timely for me to watch this (your post inspired me to go get it). I took a trip to Italy after Christmas and visited a dozen or so cathedrals and churches and it was extraordinary at how distorted and fear laden the depictions of "truth" were. I was so discouraged after standing underneath these epic illustrations only to feel like they were a huge misuse of talent. I am not sure if that is a normal response to such masterpieces, yet those thoughts and feelings were so real to me.
