Welcome the Church of Beauty

We are proud to announce the forming of the first Cyprian church in the U.S. – the Church of Beauty!

What are the tenets of the Church of Beauty?

  1. CoB-Logo-01bBeauty is the Poetry of human privilege, thus it is our responsibility.
  2. It is our duty to serve, defend and create Beauty
  3. Hating what is ugly does not create Beauty.
  4. Beauty is not easy.  It is not prettiness.  It is complex and It is changed by the journey to It.
  5. Creation is the answer to destruction.
  6. Beauty desires to assert Itself.
  7. Beauty is a faith in expectation and a subversion of fear.
  8. Sex, in all of its consensual forms, is to be honored.  The Erotic Force is the best correlation and conduit for Beauty.
  9. All of history is inadequate to utter the breadth and depth of Beauty even once.
  10. Without extraordinary Vulnerability, without sheer daring, there is no Beauty.
  11. You can gain in reason without losing the ability to be excited by Beauty.
  12. Beauty requires unity and harmony.
  13. Destruction is eternal, but Beauty is eternity itself.
  14. “Always seek out Beauty, and attempt to find it in situations that cannot be mentioned in prudish circles.” – Franz von Bayros
  15. Always “model well” – Auguste Rodin
  16. Beauty is our Life, our Light and our Perfection.
