(PUBEerdmans)Four elegant essays on interpreting the sacred: the nature of religious symbols; how language conveys the divine; art that reveals the invisible; the relationship between symbol and myth. Thought-provoking pieces gathered from this outstanding philosopher of religion. 139 pages, softcover.
Symbols of the Sacred gathers four classic essays by Louis Dupre on the role of symbols in our understanding of the sacred and on their fundamental importance to religious consciousness. A leading philosopher of religion, Dupre here discusses the nature of religious symbols, the importance of language for capturing symbolic meaning, the ancient link between art and expressions of the sacred, and the vital relationship between religious symbol and myth. The volume concludes with a powerful reflection on the innate capacity of human minds to grasp the transcendent. Elegantly expressed, conversant with a wide range of thinkers, and marked by a lifetime of reflection on the subject, Symbols of the Sacred offers profound insights into the religious dimension of human life.
