about

This interdisciplinary and international collection explores the role of the arts in shaping contemporary religion and politics. The authors ask about the future of viable communities and democratic cultures in a postmodern world, looking for clues in artistic practices and institutions and their impact on how people create history and interpret texts. The collection shows that the arts are central to struggles over the shape of society in the new millennium.
Lambert Zuidervaart is Professor of Philosophy and Henry Luttikhuizen is Associate Professor of Art History, both at Calvin College.
