Religious Experience

Baudelaire spoke of the “sensation of spiritual and physical bliss, of the contemplation of something infinitely great and infinitely beautiful, of an intensity of light which rejoices the eyes and the soul until they swoon” and a “sensation of space reaching to the furthest conceivable limits.” “For most religious people religion is experienced through routine rituals, rather than ecstasy. For most people art is experienced as mildly pleasurable, rather than ecstatically cathartic.” Rather than considering the sacred to be a central aspect of religious experience Demerath inverts our expectations, seeing religion as but one form of the sacred, and considers that the sacred is one important dimension of something broader still: culture.
