Chapter 11: Death, resurrection, sacraments and myths: religion around Sting
The final chapter addresses the influence of religious symbolism, and Roman Catholicism specifically, on the work and persona of Gordon Sumner, better known in the music world as Sting. Marienberg details the atmosphere of Catholic education which permeated Sting’s English childhood, arguing that his childhood experiences resonate in his recent Broadway musical and the album upon which it is based, The Last Ship.
