The Anthropology of Religious Charisma : Ecstasies and Institutions, Hardback Book

The Anthropology of Religious Charisma : Ecstasies and Institutions Hardback

Edited by Charles Lindholm

Part of the Contemporary Anthropology of Religion series

Description

According to Max Weber, charisma is opposed to bureaucratic order.

This collection reveals the limits of that formula. The contributors show how charisma is a part of cultural frameworks while retaining its ecstatic character among American and Italian Catholics, Syrian Sufis, Taiwanese Buddhists, Hassidic Jews, and Amazonian shamans, among others.
