Inspired by a film by Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj on view at the BMA, the discussion will explore how spiritual experience is mediated through such diverse formats as art, film, the news, scholarly texts, sermons, and prayer, as well as how the spiritual can be made tangible to believers and non-believers alike.
