From John Milton to the Chapman Brothers, artists and poets have delighted in visions of Hell, whilst Heaven is often nowhere to be seen. Does this mean we have lost our way? Should we seek secular visions of heaven or abandon these remanants of medieval superstition?
Film directors Charles Sturridge and Sally El Hosaini, leading anthropologist Henrietta Moore, and Somerset Maugham Prize-winner Marcel Theroux imagine heaven and hell at “How the Light Gets In”, the Philosophy and Music Festival at Hay 2013.
