What is ritual's relation to belief? to performance? Does ritual have its own logic?
Ritual and Religious Belief is a reader that brings together material exploring the problem of ritual from many perspectives. Selections from the sixteenth century to the present explore the idea of ritual as a type of religious behavior, ritual in relation to belief and thought, and ritual as "vain repetition." This anthology considers many perspectives, enabling the student and scholar to consider the richness of the questions surrounding the concept of ritual.
