Volume 33 of n.paradoxa: international feminist art journal explores the work of contemporary women artists whose work examines religious subjects, readings and themes. The volume takes a multi-faith, multi-denominational, trans-generational and trans-national view of this subject, drawing on diverse religions from Buddhism, Tangri, Sufism, Christianity, Judaism, paganism and matriarchal cults and cultures. Topics include sacrilege, freedom of expression and women's role in a variety of religious faiths and belief systems.
