Sexuality and the Religious Imagination

304 pages, ISBN 1-882670-51-5 / 978-1-882670-51-2, Spring Journal

Why has sacral sex been ignored through nearly 2000 years of patriarchal Christian history? To address this fascinating question, TePaske surveys the history of Western conflicts between religious creed and the numinosity of body and sex. Charting a course through Biblical Christianity, Catholic doctrine, medieval sexual heresies and Gnosticism, myth and ritual practices of the Graeco-Roman and Tantric traditions are explored, as are Paul, Augustine, Magdalen, and the Hindu saint, Ramakrishna.
