As a theologian, especially as a theologian who studies medieval theologians, I find it very natural to bring beauty into every topic that I teach. And it’s fairly easy for me to bring beauty into my writing and scholarship. But for people looking at the world from other perspectives, integrating beauty into their daily thinking and work may not be as obvious. So how important is beauty in the way you think about the world? the way you do your work? the way you understand your faith?

I think it’s more obvious than you (Laura) might think to find beauty from other perspectives on the world. Any time someone looks at the world from a perspective that they find fascinating, they are looking for beauty in creation. All you have to do is ask people who love their work why they love their work. Most of the time they will tell you something about the beauty they see in the world.
