Plate (religious studies, U. of Vermont) assembled the excerpts collected here for an undergraduate course and intends this volume as a similar resource. The excerpts are grouped into sections that deal with different aspects of the subject, including vision, Christian imagery, Islamic calligraphy, Japanese Zen gardens, Hindu divine images, and architecture and Jewish memory. Plate provides a detailed introduction to each section outlining the issues these topics inspire. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
