Sažetak The relation between faith and culture is considered under a twofold criterion: theological and pastoral. The holy and the profane permeated each other during the history. P. Tillich, an important theologian of culture, assumes that the religion and culture are complementary. This is shown by a very short historical overview of the problem, with an accent on the universalism of the message of Saint Paul. We consider the problem of the Other, and Diversity, with the excerpts from important text of the philosopher A. Badiou, and the anthropologist J. Vanier. In addition, regarding the personal experience, the author evokes the insights gained from a two year stay in South Korea.
Considering the relationship between the culture, art and beauty, the author discusses and exhaustingly quotes the key issues from the Letter to the Artists, by John Paul II (1999), and the document of the Pontifical counsel for the culture Via pulchritudinis / Privileged way of evangelisation and dialogue (2006).
In the new evangelization, which is an indispensible answer to the challenge of globalization and secularization, there are three ways of beauty: 1. the beauty of the creation, 2. the beauty of arts, 3. the beauty of Christ as the model and prototype of Christian holiness. The Christian answer stands in the intensification of the education on the foundations of the Christian morality, ethics and aesthetics, and in the teaching of an authentic philosophy of nature and theology of creation. The strategy of an interactive dialogue is contained in the letter of John Paul II, in which we are invited to a close convention between the Gospel and the arts, as an inheritance of the past and a pledge for the future.
Finally, the role of liturgy in the contemporary art is discussed, with the conclusion that it resists the relativism and uncritical pluralism of modern society. The article mentions some examples from the contemporary art in Croatia. The final answer to all the issues raised in the article points to the invitation of John Paul II to open the doors to Christ, which is confirmed and strengthened by Benedict XVI in the inaugural homily of his pontificate.
