Short description The links between religion and food have been known for centuries, but we rarely examine or understand the nature of the relationship between food and spirituality, or food and sin. Theology and Food takes seriously the idea that food matters and that eating and many of the aspects related to it - table fellowship, culinary traditions, the relationship between savoring and knowing, the aesthetic, ethical and political dimensions of food - are important and complex and throw light on both religion and our relationship to food.
