Book: Resonating Sacralities

My (very first!) monograph is out now with De Gruyter’s Religion & Society series. It’s titled Resonating Sacralities. Dynamics between Religion and the Arts in Postsecular Netherlands.

The book explores the impact of the arts and heritage formation on the continuity of religion in secularizing societies. Based on theoretical explorations and ethnographic research at Festival Musica Sacra Maastricht, I argue how artistic performance, religion, and its heritage function as mutually engaging sacred forms in postsecular Dutch society.

This book is a completely rewritten and updated version of the PhD dissertation I defended in 2016. Perhaps this new book is of interest to your (university) library!

Find more information about the book, and others in the Religion & Society series, on the De Gruyter website.
