In 20 essays, this volume explores the relationship between religious or spiritual artworks and the locality in which they are made and used; and it investigates the sources of the power so often attributed to such objects. The book focuses on East Anglia as a distinct region with a long history of religious diversity, and discusses topics including paganism in early Anglo-Saxon times, the medieval Jews of Norwich, graffiti in maritime churches, and art and religion in contemporary Norfolk. No jacket.
