Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses the connection of images to natural theology, demonstrating how images fulfil an essential role in revealed religions and examining the role of images at the level of nonrevealed religion. The attempt to provide a rudimentary overview of the ways in which images function in natural religion, is in a sense a sequel to Farrer's philosophy of sacred images. It is, also, a kind of protest against contemporary work in natural theology, which has use neither for images, nor for mental imagery.

Keywords: natural theology, sacred images, nonrevealed religion, Farrer
