Abstract

Popular culture is rarely considered as ‘a spiritual thing or matter’ unless in the negative, as an absence, constituting a moral free zone. However, as all subscribers and readers of Continuum know, this kind of pious righteousness reveals nothing of how popular cultural forms address, articulate and represent spiritual matters. The serendipity of the request for a cover image for this issue of Continuum with Saint Valentine’s Day invited me to reflect on how materialist popular culture negotiates ‘incorporeal or immaterial’ spirituality, and gets away with it without offending (almost) anyone.
