The Thing About Religionis a gallery containing four interrelated collections of Religious Things drawn from diverse cultures around the globe and across time. Each gallery was curated by a student in REL 401, taught by Prof. Lisa Bitel in Spring 2021. Students researched and selected the items in their galleries in response to a particular problem or theme in the study of material religions, then composed an interpretative essay and a label for each item.
