James W. Watts is Professor of Religion at Syracuse University. His publications include How and Why Books Matter: Essays on the Social Function of Iconic Texts (Equinox, 2019) and Understanding the Bible as a Scripture in History Culture and Religion (Wiley, 2021).


The essays in this special issue of Postscripts were commissioned for a symposium on the theme, “Seeing, Touching, Holding, and Tasting Sacred Texts,” that took place in the Käte Hamburger Kolleg on Dynamics in the History of Religions at the Center for Religious Studies (CERES) at Ruhr University in Bochum on April 7–8, 2016. During the 2015-16 academic year, the Kolleg focused its research on the theme “Religion and the Senses,” to which this workshop contributed.
