Transfiguration is a peer reviewed journal offering discussions of the relationship between art forms and Christianity in the European tradition from the early Church until today. There is an increasing interest in the more or less precisely defined religious contexts of the art forms. There is thus a demand for a theological journal that is not limited to the traditional matters within the discipline. The term theology is here used in a broader sense that includes the modes of expression and thought which have come into existence in a historical energy field between religious practice and aesthetic display. With contributions by John D. Caputo, Dorthe Jørgensen, Espen Dahl, Elisabeth Løvlie, Geir Hellemo, Uffe Holmsgaard Eriksen, Mette Birkedal Bruun, Hans Jørgen Frederiksen, Margunn Sandal, Leonora Onarheim, Kresten Thue Andersen, Martin Wangsgaard Jürgensen
