Biblical Interpretation Series, #89: Numen Book Series, Representation in Religion: Studies in Honor of Moshe Barasch Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume consists of presentations made at an international conference held in honour of Moshe Barasch, art historian and cultural critic, who has done much to elucidate the light which representation and religion shed on each other. It pays tribute to Barasch by expanding the base of understanding and insight he has erected. It should be of interest to students of religion and of art history.

Synopsis:

The volume consists of presentations made at an international conference. Authors consider the issues concerning the role of representation in religion across a variety of traditions, from the three Abrahamic faiths to those of antiquity and the East.
