Holy Space and Representational Place in the Tenth Century

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


"This anthology focuses on the peculiar "love-and-hate" relationship between Holiness and Theatricality. The interrelationships between myth, religion, and theatre are explored by investigating the unique treatment of theatricality, ritual and performance in the Holy Scriptures, and in other sacred traditions. Traditional Jewish Halachic oppositions towards theatre are discussed, as well as the way theatre was harnessed to promote Christian values."--Jacket
