Images in Religious Persuasion: A Cross-Cultural Perspective
CERES-Palais, Raum "Ruhrpott" (4.13)
The workshop gathers a cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural group of scholars to discuss about the role of images in the persuasive discourse of religions across the epochs. Focusing on examples and case studies related to different religious cultures at different stages of their history, the group of scholars will seek to single out lines of continuity and discontinuity in the religious usage of images for persuasive or dissuasive purposes, with the intent of detecting relations of hegemony, areas of conflict, and opportunities for dialogue.
