The Oxford Handbook of Religion and the Arts
Publication Date: 2014-01-01
In recent decades, the academic study of religion and the arts has burgeoned, generating new understandings of both the arts and religion in their diversity. The Oxford Handbook of Religion and the Artsdraws on the best international scholarship to open up cross-disciplinary conversation of a wide range of artistic ways of being religious, and of religious ways of being artistic. In the center sections of the present Handbook, some chapters discussreligious and spiritual aspects of specific arts: music, story, poetry, drama, dance, architecture, visual art, and film. Others focus on the arts important to particular religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Shinto. The volume begins with a major section treating topics within the relatively new field of religious and theological aesthetics, which is germane to the study of religion and the arts as a whole. It closes with a section treating representative issues and themes in the study of religion and the arts: worship,morality, belief and doubt, iconoclasm,gender and imagination,material culture, and sacred and secular styles in African American music.
