Sacred Space, Sacred Thread
Perspectives across Time and Traditions
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Creative academics are pushing back on the one-hundred-year-old specialization of academic disciplines. These scholars study fields, not narrow disciplines. They do cultural and visual history, and enrich our understanding with 'thick descriptions.' The scholars who have contributed to this fascinating volume make use of a whole array of approaches—including the study of color, smell, space, clothing, music—that, taken together, shed a much needed, more comprehensive and creative light on sacred space and performance."
