Beauty is one of the attributes of God, along with truth and goodness. For this reason monks are naturally attracted to it, and through the centuries have preserved it in their monasteries. Mount Angel Abbey, though not known as a great repository of art, has a few pieces in its collection that we would like to share with our guests.
Perhaps of greater interest to some will be the art that is produced in this monastery. Most notably, iconography has flourished on the hilltop, practiced by our Brother Claude and his art students in the Seminary. In addition to icons, other forms of painting, as well as mosaics and photography are represented here.
