These essays by prominent scholars across the field of the humanities focus on the question of what the biblical presence amounts to within the history of a particular American art or tradition. They examine the extent to which the Bible, less as a text than as a system or repository of meaning, has been a significant factor in poetry, fiction, drama, architecture, music, painting, and folk arts. This volume, as with others in the Bible in American Culture series, searches out the ways in which the Bible permeates, subtly or powerfully, the very fabric of life within the United States.
