This article probes the classic definition of religious aesthetics as related to the notions of beauty,
goodness and truth. The phenomenon of kitsch, understood as simulation (or inversion) of
beauty, goodness and truth, is taken cognisance of, especially in the light of contributions by
Milan Kundera, Umberto Eco and Jean Baudrillard. The article briefly reflects on the liturgical
consequences when kitsch manifests itself as simulated ‘beauty’, ‘goodness’ and ‘truth’ and
concludes with some considerations regarding the characteristics of kitsch.
