Description

In many societies, and for many people, religiosity is connected with texts or theologies, church or mosque, temple or monastery. This title focuses on those situations in life where we come up against the limits of language, our strength, and our knowledge, yet are sometimes thrown open to new ways of understanding our being-in-the-world.
