This volume examines the ways in which people express ideas about religions and within religions, through oral and written speech, rituals, and the visual arts. It covers the role of narratives in the expression of religious beliefs; how narratives help to create and sustain beliefs; how people tell stories about religions; and the ways in which religious beliefs and practices have been interpreted by people who have tried to understand, use, and critique them.
