Food and Drink

This thematic collection foregrounds the dynamics between food and religion and includes ethnographic and historical material.

The collection includes chapters and journal articles and is updated as new material is indexed and added to this site.

Here, women in a village prepare to carry a beer jar to a local wedding. Photography:John W. Arthur Citation
