Religion, Literature and the Imagination : Sacred Worlds Hardback
Edited by Mark Knight, Louise Lee
Part of the Continuum Literary Studies series
This work offers an important insight into the role that the religious imagination plays in the creation of sacred worlds.
The study of religion and literature continues to go from strength to strength - this collection of essays offers a dynamic, lively and provocative contribution to the field and aims to map out new directions it might take.
By returning to foundational questions regarding the relation between words and worlds and the parameters of the sacred, the essays explore different ways of using interdisciplinary resources to open up our understanding of religion and literature.
Contributions from some of the leading voices in the field unite to offer an important exploration of the possible worlds that the study of religion and literature imagines.
