Religion, Ritual, Theatre, Paperback / softback Book

Religion, Ritual, Theatre Paperback / softback

Edited by Bent Holm, Bent Flemming Nielsen, Karen Vedel


Scholars and experts in anthropology, theatricality, ethnoscenology, dance, religious studies, theology, history and art have contributed to the inspiring exchange of intellectual inquiry in this book.

It presents the revised lectures and a selection of the revised papers from the international and interdisciplinary conference Religion, Ritual, Theatre which took place in April 2006 at the University of Copenhagen.

The aim of the book is to intertwine new theories with concrete case studies in an empirical and practical manner.

Case studies from different places and various cultures in Europe, South Africa, the Near East and India demonstrate noticeable parallels concerning the notions of embodiment and practice.

Even though these upcoming perspectives share a rather redundant vocabulary they nevertheless seem to contribute to a common ground of a phenomenology of the body, of action and perception.
