Recent work in religious studies has emphasised both as ‘spatial turn’ (Knott 2005, Tweed 2006) and greater attention on material religion and the vernacular and everyday expression of faith (Vásquez 2011, Ammerman 2007). Following the call from Dwyer (2016) to develop the links between cultural geographies of materiality (and immateriality) and work by geographers of religion this session brings together papers which ask how faith, place and material culture intersect in the expression of religious identities and what questions this raises for the study of the ‘religious’ and the ‘secular’ in geography.
