Fine art and religion are at odds with each other in the sense that often either the religion or the art is secondary. Controversies arise when art transgresses religious sensibilities. We find religion and art intertwined in popular culture, lived religion and non-Western religious art. In this Minor, we will investigate the relationship between art and religion from various perspectives.

For students of Islam Studies, this minor comes with extra courses to choose from; please see the course description Minor Religion, Art and Culture (for Islam Studies).
