Interpreting Religion at Museums and Historic Sites

Edited by Barbara Franco ’65 and Gretchen Buggeln

Interpreting Religion at Museums and Historic Sites, edited by Barbara Franco ’65 and Gretchen Buggeln, draws on studies of how institutions interpret religious history and encourages readers to consider the history of religion as integral to American culture. It provides a practical guide for any museum to include interpretation of religious traditions in its programs and exhibits. (Rowman & Littlefield, 2018)
