The Place of Monsters in Theology

Throughout history monsters have played a key part in the religious imagination. In their wonder and complexity, they pose questions about how we interpret the world. It might be about the extent of Jesus' salvific power or even whether monsters exist. This exhibit looks at the questions monsters raise and the answers of theologians throughout history. It asks how we have attempted to interpret monsters, their relationship with humanity, and the blurred line between the two.
