First study to consider the implications of Simmel's approach to sociology of religion in relation to the emergence of visual culture
Preface Introduction Sociology and Virtual Religion: Issues of Memory and Identity Who Sees There? Tales of Character, Virtue and Trust Visual Culture and the Virtual: The Internet and Religious Displays To See or Not to See: The Plight of the Voyeur Piety and Visual Culture: Seeking to See the Unseen Dark into Light: A Sociological Navigation Notes and References Bibliography
This lively and highly original study explores the link between visual culture and religion in terms of tales, memory and character. It draws out the sociological implications of handling the virtual and virtue in ways of seeing. Using Simmel's approach to religiosity in his third study of sociology in theology, Flanagan explores how spectacle is to be understood in ways that yield trust. The study will be invaluable for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on visual culture, sociology of religion and theology.
