Dance As Religious Studies


Book is in excellent condition with corners showing very, very slight shelfwear as the only flaw. Binding is solid and square, covers have sharp corners, exterior shows no blemishes, text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. [The book] studies choreographers, dancers, and scholars, joining hands in exploring the multiple connections between dnace and religion in comtemporary worship and ritual, in modern choreography based on religious subject matter, and in choreography that is not thematically religious. Paying particular attention to the history of dance in the judeo-Christian tradition, [the book] celebrates the modern rediscovery of the human body as central to ritual and to religious faith. Further, a series of essays employinging a feminist hermeneutic shows how the history of t dance mirrors the relatiohship between the social and religious roles of women.
