Abstract Some reflections on significant cultural changes in the ways of seeing argue that seeing cannot but embody a particular way of relating to the world. The core of the paper proceeds to examine what Christians might mean by scriptural phrases like “the eyes of the heart” or “seeing God's glory.” Drawing on liturgy and contemporary visual art that witnesses to the ascension, I argue that claims of “seeing with the eyes of faith” challenge the customary kind of realism, make sense of assertions of seeing near things with their extension of meaning, and allow for seeing mystery close up.
