Zeichentragende Artefakte im sakralen Raum
The (In)Visible Evil in Sacred Space: Codes, Keys and Clues to Reading Its Image
Sign-bearing artifacts are immanent elements of sacred spaces in many cultures. Often, one encounters a phenomenon there that might be described as deliberate “invisibility,” the conscious “concealment” of artefacts and writing. The volume examines this interplay of presence and invisibility using the example of sign-bearing artefacts in sacral spaces in various religions in the Near East and Europe.
