Modern Religious Art displays and encourages and the work of contemporary artists who are in some way motivated by or engaged with the religious. By religion we mean those matters of ultimate concern.
Modern Religious Art is not prescriptive of any particular belief system, it may contain contributions from artists who follow a particular faith but also artists of no faith or creed, and there will be those who consider themselves atheists, religious humanists, humanists, or agnostic

"The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical. It is the sower of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger….is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself to us as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of all true religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense only, I belong to the ranks of devoutly religious men." Albert Einstein

Art is now the closest thing we have to religion.
Art reveals the fundamental processes of religion and religion should be thought of as something like a work of art.
Religion like Art is not about propounding doctrines, it’s not about what’s lawful or unlawful but about playfulness and creativity.
