Sensation, Sight and Sound of Nigerian Religious Movements: A Comparative Study of Christ Embassy and Nasrullahi-Fathi Society (NASFAT)

Murtala Ibrahim

The aim of this research project is to undertake a thorough study of Christ Embassy and NASFAT in a comparative framework. The central focus is on their salient and outspoken material expressive forms: music, texts, images and buildings. In addition, the research will explore how material forms and, more broadly, the religious aesthetics, of Christ Embassy and NASFAT operate as media that link members with spiritual realm.

This research project is part of Habitats and Habitus: Politics and Aesthetics of Religious World Making, directed by Birgit Meyer (Prof. of Religious Studies, Utrecht University & Humboldt Award Holder of ZMO), funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, through an Anneliese Maier Research Award 2011 in collaboration with Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies (BGSMCS), FU-Berlin.
