Winning Souls Through the Met Gala

Last edited 10th May 2018

On the one hand, it seemed odd. Why would the minds behind the Met Gala — an event attended by famously secular, “do what you want, there is no truth” minded celebrities — pick a theme that literally has the word “Catholic” in the title? Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination is a pretty ardently Catholic theme, chosen to celebrate the opening of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where very obviously Catholic stuff is on display — things like papal tiaras, items from the sacristy of the Sistine Chapel, religious vestments, even a relic of St. Valentine, all while sacred music is played overhead. The entire exhibit puts sacred images and items in full view, showing how Catholicism has influenced the world of fashion and art, and how the Church’s art has played a seemingly huge role in the imagination of designers and artists.
