Ordinary Lives and Grand Schemes : An Anthropology of Everyday Religion, Paperback / softback Book

Ordinary Lives and Grand Schemes : An Anthropology of Everyday Religion Paperback / softback

Edited by Liza Debevec, Smuli Schielke

Part of the EASA series

Description

Everyday practice of religion is complex in its nature, ambivalent and at times contradictory.

The task of an anthropology of religious practice is therefore precisely to see how people navigate and make sense of that complexity, and what the significance of religious beliefs and practices in a given setting can be.

Rather than putting everyday practice and normative doctrine on different analytical planes, the authors argue that the articulation of religious doctrine is also an everyday practice and must be understood as such.
