Summary:
The research network REDIM examines the interactions and relationships of religious things in collections, exhibitions and museums. Our research focuses on the shifting function and meaning of religious things, through the twin processes of decontextualisation and recontextualisation in the museum setting. By using the term religious ‘things’, we follow a broad understanding of Houtman and Meyer, who see facets of material religion not only in images and objects, but also in bodies, spaces and technologies.1 This approach is based on an understanding of religion, in which material testimonies are part of communication systems through which religious meanings and communities are constituted, instead of reducing them solely to carriers of information and supplements to written sources.
