How to be Iconophilic in Art, Science and Religion

Abstract : Starting from the work done in the last fifteen years on the scientific vizualization, the paper connects both with art history -comparing the treatment of mediation in both fields, and from there to theology. The paper argues that it is possible to reopen the science/religion debate if religion is stripped of its belief in belief which has no other ground than a mistaken view of scientific information production. The case study is then deployed of the iconography of the Assomption. The transformation of information is then compared, in a systematic way with that of person transportation. Love talk, the only remnant of theology without belief in subtance, is then reformatted.
