Ritualized Faith : Essays on the Philosophy of Liturgy, Hardback Book


Central to the lives of the religiously committed are not simply religious convictions but also religious practices.

The religiously committed, for example, regularly assemble to engage in religious rites, including corporate liturgical worship.

Although the participation in liturgy is central to the religious lives of many, few philosophers have given it attention.

In this collection of essays, Terence Cuneo turns his attention to liturgy, contending that the topicproves itself to be philosophically rich and rewarding.

Taking the liturgical practices of Eastern Christianity as its focal point, Ritualized Faith examines issues such as what the ethical importance of ritualized religious activities might be, what it is to immerse oneself in such activities, andwhat the significance of liturgical singing and iconography are.

In doing so, Cuneo makes sense of these liturgical practices and indicates why they deserve a place in the religiously committed life.
