THE MISSION OF ART IN THE SPIRITUAL CULTURE OF

MOSLEMS – SHIITES

 

Proceeding from the universal interrelations of religion, philosophy and the art of formation of spiritual culture, the article considers the mission – the place and role of the art in the Shiite cultural tradition of the Islamic region. The theme is developed through the references to the definite realia, in particular, the cultural traditions of the North-Caucasian nations in the given region. The article also considers the ideational sources including the philosophy of “wahdat al-wujud” in the formation of the esthetic notions and art of the Shiite-orientation as well as their difference from the Sunnite notions. The problem is presented theoretically as well in the scheme of a definite elucidation of different forms of art, painting, miniature, the artistic design of manuscripts, architecture, theatre of the city of Derbent, one of the most ancient cultural centres of the Caucasus – the famous city-museum. As the author writes, the elements of different ethnic cultures merged in the art of the Moslems-Shiites; consequently, a single esthetic space was created from the art of different nations and countries, in the meantime successfully maintaining also the indigenous artistic traditions. And this art has unconsciously produced high feelings, wakened the idea of the splendor, beauty, harmony and unbounded nature of being.
