Volume 33 of n.paradoxa: international feminist 
art journal explores the work of contemporary 
women artists whose work examines religious 
subjects, readings and themes. The volume takes a 
multi-faith, multi-denominational, 
trans-generational and trans-national view of 
this subject, drawing on diverse religions from 
Buddhism, Tangri, Sufism, Christianity, Judaism, 
paganism and matriarchal cults and cultures. 
Topics include sacrilege, freedom of expression 
and women's role in a variety of religious faiths 
and belief systems.
