Scientific randomness in the universe goes beyond particles at the molecular level and can extend to everything we encounter in our lives. Random Library Book is a series of my walks down different library aisles and I randomly pick out a book. I bring light to books that might otherwise get lost in the large repetitive physical aisles of a library.
Objects in Motion: The Circulation of Religion and Sacred Objects in the Late Antique and Byzantine World.
By Hallie G. Meredith
Wondering past the religion section of the library, I randomly grabbed this anthology which contains a series of papers that had their origins in a symposium convened while the editor was a Research Fellow at the Bard Graduate Center of New York in May 2008. The compilation was produced in 2011. The book contains 129 pages and is illustrated throughout in black and white. The Publisher is the British Archaeological Reports.
Flipping through the pages, I found this be a tough read, but worth it for those who want to study religion and how sacred objects are circulated within culture at a very specific time frame in humanity.
