Description

Introducing Sensual Religion, this chapter not only summarises themes and issues discussed in the main chapters, but also aims to provoke discussion of relationships between religion and senses, emphasising the doing of religion in bodily and sensual activities. It uses some origins narratives to demonstrate the importance of sensual data in religious narratives and acts.
