Description

This text is a cross-cultural exploration of the study of visuality and the arts from a religious perspective. The collection gathers together the contemporary scholarship for those interested in art, religion, visual culture, and cultural studies. Inherently interdisciplinary, this reader approaches the study of world religions through the human, meaning-making activity of seeing. The volume oscillates between specific visual subjects (painting, landscape gardens, calligraphy, architecture, mass media) and the broader theoretical discourses which are relevant to humanities students today.
