Description

Marianne Schleicher provides a detailed analysis of the ritualized processes of creating and installing a Torah scroll in a Jewish congregation. By grounding the artefactual uses of the scroll in each of the five senses, her essay demonstrates the pre-cognitive ways in which sensation shapes religious experiences of the text.
