Peter J. Leithart » Blog Archive » Liturgical Cosmology

“It was Smart’s belief that God creates and sustains a cosmic harmony upon which the universe is contingent – in effect, God sings the universe into being – and the poet’s duty is to serve as a kind of choir-master leading the creation in an answering song… Eighteenth-century scientific and philosophical thought… had helped to estrange the men of his time from God and make them guilty of ‘INGRATITUDE.’ He objects particularly to Mechanistic and Deistic approaches to the universe because they portrayed it as cold and quantitative rather than warm and pulsating with the song of the Creator.”
