 "The Religion of Antiques Roadshow: Authenticity as the Highest Value"

Relying on highly-trained specialists, Antiques Roadshow allows us to watch as the authentic pieces are separated from the fraudulent or imitation work. The search for what is deemed real and genuine ultimately leads to what is seen as valuable. How has a similar search for authenticity shaped the development of faith and Unitarian Universalism? - Emrys Staton
