    Correct Answer
    C. Encouraged by the Roman Catholic Church for communicating religious themes.
    During the Baroque Period, the Roman Catholic Church encouraged the art movement for its ability to effectively communicate religious themes. Baroque art was characterized by its dramatic and emotional style, which was well-suited for expressing the grandeur and spirituality of religious subjects. The Church saw this as a powerful tool to engage and inspire the faithful. The statement about the Roman Catholic Church discouraging the portrayal of vulgar images in art may be true, but it is not directly related to the question and does not explain the correct answer.
