I am going to be away from this blog, briefly. After a very hectic summer and with the new semester fast approaching, it's time for a vacation vacation. I'm going to Rome for a few days and then to the coast of Italy to swim and read and swim.
For the next week, I've scheduled variety of old posts to be re-posted, as well as assorted ephemera of relevance to the subject of American religion and culture. I will be back to regular blogging starting the 17th. There are several posts long promised and now long overdue -- two book reviews, a proposal for an explanation of religious construction, and some deeper exploration of upcoming 1st Amendment cases in the Supreme Court -- which I will get to then.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
