Sofort lieferbar | Versandkostenfrei
Religious Objects in Museums is the first book to examine how religious objects are transformed in museum, and examines the range of meanings that religious objects may bear - as scientific specimen, sacred icon, work of art, or historical record. This accessible book is an essential introduction to the subject.

A study which provides the first concise, comprehensive overview of the key issues surrounding a hotly debated topic: the presentation and inclusion of religious objects in museums. It provides students with an ideal way into debates on religious expression, colonialism and the appropriation of sacred objects, secularism and objectivity, and the changing meaning of objects.
