"We must speak technically because of certain carping critics: faith is truly righteousness because it is obedience to the gospel Our good works of obedience to the law can be pleasing to God only because this obedience to the Gospel takes hold of Christ, the propitiator, and is reckoned for righteousness (Rom.8:1).
Is it even possible for us to approach a work of art with the recognition that our judgment of it belongs to a history of judgments, each participating in the life of the work, but doing so only because enlivening criticism offers itself to the work of art in the position of a suppliant, a propitiator? Better, perhaps, that art sleep in its marble death to all eternity than to be awakened only to be tormented by the judgments of history.
