The author's perspective, as someone who was raised as a Roman Catholic, is described in this chapter. Previous assumptions about Christianity are also made explicit. The scholarly concepts of “art” and “material culture” are discussed, and the threads that run through the book are introduced, such as how we view the “other” and how the character of the knowledge we gain depends on whether we start out assuming sameness or difference. The origins of the ideas presented in the book—an outgrowth of research into material culture at Tipu—are described, as are the method, theory, and aims of the research.
