Here is a survey, through art from around the world, of the sacred dimension of sexuality. It demonstrates beyond a doubt that the notion of sexual relationships as something honorable, nonpossessive, fulfilling, and beneficial is nothing new, nor is the idea limited to the traditions of the mystic East. John Stevens shows how world sexual traditions have always had the spiritual as their highest goal. His survey looks at art from China, India, Native American traditions, ancient Europe, Japan, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, Tibet, Greece, Africa, and Mexico, as well as art by modern artists like Eric Gill. The book includes an extensive bibliography.
