Should Christians watch movies with nudity in them? Should they look at nudity in art? This is a question that seems to have cropped up lately, and today I read a blog that discussed it. By the way, to add what this blog said about the immorality in the 16th century among the high Catholic religious leaders (including the Medici, and also the Borgia popes), many historians have found evidence that the nudity in Renaissance art was for the people who commissioned the works---mainly wealthy patrons and high officials of the Cathlic church. And, essentially these works of art were like nudity magazines today (i.e. Playboy). In addition, some of the art, painted by homosexuals such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, had homoerotic elements which at times was for a few church officials who were homosexuals. All of this said, the art still is stunningly beautiful.
