Religious Signing: A Comprehensive Guide for All Faiths

Elaine Costello Ph.D.

Since the fourth century, when Spanish monks first started signing to communicate during their vows of silence, sign language has been used in religious communities of all faiths. Present-day American Sign Language (ASL) carries on that tradition. Like any living language, it continues to grow and change to meet the communication needs of an ever more diverse religious population. This comprehensive guide, newly revised, updated, and expanded, gives you all the vocabulary you need to communicate effectively in any religious setting.

From Alleluia to Zizith, more than 750 signs and their specific meanings

Large, clear, upper-torso illustrations that show the corresponding movements of hands, body, and face

Easy-to-follow instructions to help you master the art of expressing signs

A complete index for quick access to any sign

With an essential section of religious “name signs,” the addition of signs for the Muslim faith, and an expanded selection of favorite verses, prayers, and blessings, this book is an indispensable resource for signers of all denominations. Written with expertise by an educator and author associated with the field of deafness for more than thirty years, it makes communicating by ASL in a religious setting simple and easy, no matter your level of experience.
