In volume III von Balthasar shows the extraordinary range of his knowledge and expertise in a series of essays designed to illustrate different ways in which theologians have shaped their work. What he offers is 'a typology of the relationship between beauty and revelation' which shows 'that there neither has been nor could be any truly great and historically fruitful theology which was not expressly conceived and born under the constellation of beauty and grace. Volume III contains studies of Dante, John of the Cross, Pascal, Hamann, Soloview, Hopkins and Peguay.
