9780931201929: Stewards Of The Sacred

In an age when religion and religious interpretation have become ever more contentious, how should museums fulfill their roles as stewards and interpreters of sacred material? Stewards of the Sacred helps museums strike a balance between the traditions of the past, the demands of the present, and the opportunities of the future as they engage in a discourse about the principle and practices of faith. Drawn from a conference organized by Harvard University's Center for the Study of World Religions, the book's leading authors cover a full range of topics, including community involvement in conservation and interpretation of sacred objects, representing spirituality for widely diverse visitors, acknowledging the sacred nature of non-religious objects, and sharing authority with Native communities. Includes sample policies and procedures related to these activities, as well as a comprehensive bibliography. A must-read for museums concerned with this rapidly growing interpretive arena.
