This thesis explores visual aspects of megachurches in Korea that suggest how Korean people have merged evangelical Christianity with Korean artistic sensitivity as well as international visual culture to create a new visual church culture in Korea. I categorize and analyze visual characteristics of these visual artifacts, then speculate about theological, historical, and cultural connections active in the making and choosing of these visuals and how those choices support the conservative and aggressively patriarchal culture of today's Korean megachurches.
