The sublime is at the heart of Kant's aesthetic philosophy. According to Kant it refers to infinite and infinite conceptions such as time, death, space, and the spiritual world; it refers to greatness that is superior to any comparison and beyond any deduction. This marvelous greatness can be attributed to moral action, the grandeur of pure thought, or the greatness of natural lords, such as the enormous storm or ocean of infinity, and even the greatness of a work of art. The research is based on a descriptive-analytical method with inductive reasoning and data is collected via library research. The results of the study demonstrate that the theory of the sublime is best presented in the religious church art; moreover, the paintings of the Gothic period compared to the Byzantine period is a representative of this art that undoubtedly remarks Kant's theory of the sublime.
