SYMBOLS OF THE SACRED

Full Product Description

Symbols of the Sacred gathers four classic essays by Louis Dupré on the role of symbols in our understanding of the sacred and on their fundamental importance to religious consciousness. A leading philosopher of religion, Dupré 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.

SYMBOLS OF THE SACRED by Dupre was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in July 2000. The ISBN for SYMBOLS OF THE SACRED is 9780802847485.
