Abstract

Searching Altyerre to Reveal the Cosmic Christ describes the development of Altyerre-Catholicism by the Arrernte people of Alice Springs, based on their continuing reliance on their ancient imaginary, Altyerre, creatively integrated with Catholicism and formed into a dynamic imaginary that offers them consolation and concurrently hope to the wider Christian community.
