On 16 November 2022, CECC launched Literatura, Artes e Religião: ensaios sobre redenção, the closing event to the colloquium “Arts, Literature and Culture: A Religious Perspective” (Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Lisbon). The book was co-edited by Maria do Rosário Lupi Bello (CECC) and Luiz Felipe Pondé (Labô-PUC S. Paulo), the two coordinators of the research group LCR: Literature, Cinema and Religion.
This first volume aims to demonstrate that culture and religion are two inalienable components of any human expression or movement. Focus is placed on the Judaeo-Christian concept of "redemption", from an interdisciplinary perspective, namely in contemporary literature, arts and thought. The end goal is to offer a thorough reflection on the implications of the religious in the human and the influence of religion on Man’s reflexive and creative expression.
This work is published by Universidade Católica Editora and is part of the collection ECC: Estudos de Comunicação e Cultura (Communication and Culture Studies), under the subsection Art, Culture and Citizenship.
