Interpreting Religion is an essential starting point for those who seek to represent religion to the public. It not only will generate ideas for curators and educators, it will serve to stimulate reflection on the slippery beast we name "religion".
This book addresses what has been a source of anxiety and concern for many years. This book, a publication of the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH), attempts, through case studies of successful
exhibitions, to suggest ways to approach the interpretation of religious topics for a general audience. The book would certainly be of use to anyone preparing a religious site for public consumption, whether a museum professional or a representative of the religious faith represented.
