Abstract: This paper examines the related but different concepts of the uncanny and the sacred. Drawing on two cases - one fictional and one real - and using Zizek's Symbolic-Real-Imaginary as an organising frame, the paper analyses how the uncanny and the sacred are connected. It then proceeds to examine the role of theorising in sacralising the uncanny and profaning the sacred. Finally, it briefly discusses how theory might be re-enchanted.
