AWARD: Teylers Theological Society

I am honored by the decision of the Teylers Theological Society, to award my essay collection In Pursuit of the Sacred: The Museum as Laboratory in the Contemporary Quest for God a gold medal.

I wrote this essay collection in response to the academic competition launched by Prof. Marcel Barnard, member of the Teylers Theological Society. On behalf of the society, he  requested a research on the museum as contemporary sacred site.

The prize wlll be awarded on Friday, 16 March, in the beautiful historic building of the Teylers Museum in Haarlem.

More information about the competition and prize (in Dutch) can be found on the website of the Teylers museum. The award ceremony is open to the public.
