Overview

The study of religion and literature continues to go from strength to strength - this collection of essays offers a dynamic, lively and provocative contribution to the field and aims to map out new directions it might take.
By returbaning to foundational questions regarding the relation between words and worlds and the parameters of the sacred, the essays explore different ways of using interdisciplinary resources to open up our understanding of religion and literature. Contributions from some of the leading voices in the field unite to offer an important exploration of the possible worlds that the study of religion and literature imagines.
