Exploring Religion through Text and Film

This essay addresses the relationship between Vlad Naumescu’s 2019 CSSH article, “Pedagogies of Prayer: Teaching Orthodoxy in South India,” and a short documentary film that the author produced several years ago as part of the same research project. It reflects on the relationship between film and text and on the possibilities that the combination of the two media afford.
