Chapter Summary

This section of the book Iconoclasm and Iconoclash: Struggle for Religious Identity contains color photographs such as those depicting Duro Europos Synagogue, the Christian topography, Cathar Bible of Lyon, and the image of Holy Spirit. In the summer of 2005 historians of Utrecht University organized an international conference, entitled 'Iconoclash: The Struggle for Religious Identity'. The conference focused its attention on the process of iconoclash and iconoclasm as an important device for identifying the construction of religious identity. The conference's chosen title was Religious Identity and the Problem of Historical Foundation. Its leading question was to what extent religious traditions throughout history played a crucial role in determining the formation and/or continuation of religious identity by appealing to authoritative texts or to oral sources of inspired truth.
