Sacrality and materiality: locating intersections


Sacrality and materiality: locating intersections. Edited by: Giselbrecht, Rebecca A; Kunz, Ralph (2015). Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.

Abstract

Christian theology traditionally regards the sacramental as the polar opposite of the profane. The polarity is a memorial of contemporary desacralization, profanization, and sacralization that stands as a portal to the story of modern reality. In our liminal space, we neither de-sacralize our environs nor re-sacralize the world. The lines are blurred and our perception of spirituality is neither immanent nor transcendent.
This conference volume seeks to reply to the questions: Where does the sacred intersect with the material? What happens when they meet?
