Florence: City of Divine Beauty is a meditation on the most beautiful of cities, composed as a poem or chant written in light. Its subject is the art and architecture of Florence, which is imbued with Christian faith, philosophy, and mysticism. It reminds the reader that Christianity itself is about beauty — the beauty of Divine compassion, the beauty of Divine wisdom, and the beauty of Divine love. Viewed as a whole, the city's monuments are seen as a reflection of the Ancient Greek concept of "taksis" or Divine order. For this reason, those who contemplate the art of Florence can catch a glimpse of eternal beauty, and the mind of God itself.
