Summary:Professor Ferguson talks about the nature of religious experience and responses, explores methods of eliciting a religious response by means of the spoken word, by ritual and through visual images. He ends by suggesting that the essential nature of religious response lies in the holy, the numinous and the awesome. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
