In our hedonistic societies, the body is displayed, contemplated, transformed, and aestheticized. It departs from the predominant view of religion, according to which the body is the vector of the relationship with the other and with God, even the instrument of God. Some religions celebrate the beauty of the body as the work of God. If people today celebrate, eroticise and deify the body, then are we entering a “post-religious” age in the West while elsewhere the body is covered to curb desire? Where does modesty fit in today’s world, with its splintering of values?
