Religion and Its Monsters

Full Product Description

Religion's great and powerful mystery fascinates us, but also terrifies. So too the monsters that haunt the stories of the Judeo-Christian myths and earlier traditions: Leviathan, Behemoth, dragons and other beasts. In this unusual and provocative book, Timothy K. Beal writes about the monsters that lurk in our religious texts, and about how monsters and religion are deeply entwined. Horror and faith are inextricable. And as monsters are part of religious texts and traditions, so religion lurks in the modern horror genre, from its birth in Dante's Inferno to the contemporary spookiness of H.P. Lovecraft and the Hellraiser films. Religion and it's Monsters is essential reading for students of religion and popular culture, as well as any readers with an interest in horror.

Religion and Its Monsters by Timothy K. Beal was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in December 2001 and is our 55837th best seller. The ISBN for Religion and Its Monsters is 9780415925884.
