Overview

Volumes 1�4 were published by the University of Wisconsin Law School and are now distributed by the University of Wisconsin Press. The University of Wisconsin Press will publish volume 5 and subsequent volumes.�A bold new venture in interdisciplinary discussion. By bringing together legal scholars, literary critics, philosophers, theologians, poets, and artists, Graven Images will quickly become an indispensable forum for contemporary debate. During a period when disciplinary boundaries are dissolving and reforming, Graven Images is opening important new channels of communication for anyone concerned about the critical social and cultural questions we are facing.�

—Mark C. Taylor, Preston S. Parish Third Century Professor of Humanities, Williams College

Founded as a journal but now evolving into a book series, Graven Imagesilluminates culture, the law, and the human urge for transcendence. Graven Images seeks to redefine a space for the sacred in the face of post-modernist materialism.
