Abstract

The session explores the meanings underlying the presence of names within, or absence from, sacred spaces and sacred texts. Papers focus on those individuals whose names were not written down or inscribed, or were removed, and those whose names, on the contrary, were put in prominent positions, and were thus considered particularly worthy to be named.
