The photograph on the cover of this issue, “Heft (2 Books)” by Allyson Clay, depicts two books tumbling through the air. Fitting with our theme for this issue, Crisis Conceptualized, the image of books tumbling through the air relates to ideas of iconoclasm and frustration, while the serene blue sky through which they sail imposes a kind of peace on the scene. This issue approaches both personal and institutional crisis, and examines the ways in which these crises are represented by members of the Christian communities as a means of conceptualizing and addressing the struggle and turmoil that inevitably comes hand-in-hand with transformation. This piece is currently housed in Carr Hall on the University of St. Michael’s College campus, as a part of the Donovan Collection.

Vol 12, No 2 (2017): Crisis Conceptualized

The theme for this issue of Saeculum is “Crisis Conceptualized.” Building on the theme from 12.1 which was “Crisis, Revolution, and Reform,” this issue is comprised of papers which approach the notion of crisis within the Church, and the individual’s moral journey, through the lenses of art, politics, and film. These papers show how Christianity engages with the person at all levels of their humanity, especially when in times of crisis. In the face these crises, communities negotiate their frustrations through tangible and conceptual outlets.
