When talking about sacredness, in general, and about the sacredness of art, in particular, the problem of morality intervenes from a biblical perspective. This is because whenever we have to do with the artistic sacredness, we have to do with an election through which we switch from worshiping God to something else entirely. In the present research we will try to put the scientific–dogmatic basis on the issue of the above. Without claiming to solve the problem, we will emphasize, however, some nuances trying to take into account both the artistic vocation and the artistic intention, both the vocation of the artist and the artist’s intention.
