about

This book situates the study of Black Religion within the modern temporal and historical structures in the Atlantic World. It describes how black people and Black Religion made a phenomenological appearance in modernity simultaneously and were signified in the identity formation of whites and their religion.

Editorial Reviews

"In Black Religion and the Imagination of Matter in the Atlantic World, Noel engages wide-ranging theoretical and disciplinary frameworks (comparative religions, historical, phenomenological, philosophical, theological, sociological, textual/hermeneutical) to distill from diverse thoughts and analytical lenses a new interdisciplinary approach to the study of Black Atlantic religious experience . . .I suspect that Noel s volume will have a definitive impact upon the field of Black religious studies for many years to come. It will be the one text that scholars of religion might use to cover Black religious experience while simultaneously teaching religious studies theory and methodology." - Dianne M. Stewart, Associate Professor of Religion, Emory University
