Arts in the Religions of the Pacific Symbols of Life

by Albert C. Moore

Part of the Religion & the Arts S. Series

Arts in the Religions of the Pacific Symbols of Life Synopsis

The Arts have always been vital in teaching, and are the primary bases for religious communication: paleolithic cave paintings and artefacts long predate many scriptural sources. This major new series is designed to provide and understanding of the world's religions through the various art forms associated with religious practice and experience - whether the visual arts, dance, drama or music. In focusing on the importance of the art form in religious teaching and its role outside galleries and museums, this distinctive series moves beyond the traditional realms of religious art literature. Given the fact that mass literacy is largely a modern 'western phenomenon', this series responds to an obvious gap in religious communication, alongside its traditional textual sources. Thus, the Religion and the Arts series presents a unique synthesis of ideas, literature and themes, to emphasise the very varied relationship between diverse religions and the art which both informs the cultures themselves and is also a vivid expression of their systems of beliefs.
