Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) promotes a vibrant engagement between Christian theology and the arts at Duke Divinity School and beyond. Through events, teaching, and research, it is dedicated to showing how the arts can be enriched by theology, and theology in turn renewed through the arts.

At the heart of DITA’s vision is this key insight: the arts (including music, visual arts, and literature) do not just illustrate theology but are themselves modes of theological expression. The arts shape the imagination of the community and provide the forms through which many people most directly and compellingly encounter the message of the gospel.
