In this week we will focus on the dichotomy between the sacred and the profane as a central part in religion.

Man becomes aware of the sacred because it manifests itself, shows itself, as something wholly different from the profane… something sacred shows itself to us… something of a wholly different order, a reality that does not belong to our world, in objects that are an integral part of our natural “profane” world. Mircea Eliade – “The Sacred and the Profane : The Nature of Religion: The Significance of Religious Myth, Symbolism, and Ritual within Life and Culture” (1961),
