slide 5 of 9

This is taken from a transcript of a 1995 interview with the eminent
Perennialist thinker and writer Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998).

Question: Could one say that there is a natural link between beauty in the broadest sense and esoterism?

Frithjof Schuon: Yes, there is a link between beauty and esoterism, because “Beauty is the splendor of the True.” Traditional art is esoteric, not exoteric. Exoterism is interested in morals, not in beauty; it even happens that exoterism can be opposed to beauty because of a moralistic prejudice.
