Summary: "This book is the first to deal with the way museums treat religion." "Fourteen contributors from museums and universities across the world look at the themes and material culture of religion, and examine how museums handle and present what is often a 'difficult' subject, yet one that has pervaded every human society." "The book will be essential reading for all who work in museums, as curators, conservators or exhibition designers, but will be equally important for students of religion, of art history and of culture."--Jacket.
