Ultimate Devotion : The Historical Impact and Archaeological Expression of Intense Religious Movements, Hardback Book

Ultimate Devotion : The Historical Impact and Archaeological Expression of Intense Religious Movements Hardback

Part of the Approaches to Anthropological Archaeology series

Description

From the first Jewish revolt against Rome in the first century CE to contemporary Islamic fanaticism, faith in the hands of religious zealots has been a powerful and often catastrophic means of enacting radical change. 'Ultimate Devotion' examines a range of religious movements across history to reveal the striking similarities in the way they emerged, the characters of their leaders and followers, and their often tragic conclusions.

A rich variety of archaeological materials intersect with textual evidence and anthropological theory to develop a model of mass action inspired by intense religion.

In its exploration of religious rebellion in history, 'Ultimate Devotion' illuminates religious fanaticism today.
