8 Therefore, the categories listed above cannot be individually or collectively necessary for an artwork to be spiritual. Secondly, I claim that there is a quality threshold that needs to be met for the spiritual in art – as with beauty, the spiritual is something that has to be achieved, it is not automatically possessed.

If so, then the mere occurrence of any of these categories of property alone cannot be suf ficient to make an artwork spiritual.
