Material Religion: The Journal of Images, Objects, and Belief
A new journal from Berg Publishers, Oxford

Material Religion seeks to explore how religion happens in material
culture – images, devotional and liturgical objects, architecture and
sacred space, works of art and mass-produced artifacts. No less
important than these material forms are the many different practices
that put them to work. Ritual, communication, ceremony, instruction,
meditation, propaganda, pilgrimage, display, magic, liturgy and
interpretation constitute many of the practices whereby religious
material culture constructs the worlds of belief.
