Aesthetics of Religion is a new paradigm that connects research approaches on materiality, the body, the senses, media, and religion. This network emerged from the working group “Aesthetics of Religion” (founded in 2007) of the German Association for the Study of Religion (DVRW). From 2015 to 2018, a network of fifteen scholars from Germany and abroad were part of AESTOR.NET, promoting this approach at six conferences and workshops funded by the German Research Fundation (DFG). The network of scholars recently published “The Bloomsbury Handbook of the Cultural and Cognitive Aesthetics of Religion”.
