Kate Langan (b. 1963, Elgin, Scotland) lived in Dartmouth at the time of publication.

"Since earliest times, art and spirituality have had a symbiotic relationship. From the images of suns and spirals carved in ancient stone monuments to the explosion of Christian symbolism in the fifth century, art has been a means of making manifest one's contact with the highest creative energy.

Although in modern times materialism and function have overshadowed spirituality and form, the search for that elusive quality, the spiritual, can be found in the art and craft of many individuals, some of whom pursue their spiritual search alone, others, within traditional religious structures. Whenever their art responds to the specific needs of communal worship it can be called liturgical art - the focus of this book.

The 'Art of Worship' features the work of some 37 Nova Scotian artisans whose craft is both an expression of their own spiritual search as well as an offering to the larger community of seekers in support of their acts of public worship and private devotion. Often working from studios attached to their homes, these artists produce original artwork worthy of any sacred place of worship." - from rear cover.
