A sociology of religious emotion by Ole Riis( Book )
21 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This timely book aims to change the way we think about religion by putting emotion back onto the agenda. It challenges a tendency to over-emphasize rational aspects of religion, and rehabilitates its embodied, visceral and affective dimensions. Against the view that religious emotion is a purely private matter, it offers a new framework which shows how religious emotions arise in the varied interactions between human agents and religious communities, human agents and objects of devotion, and communities and sacred symbols. It presents parallels and contrasts between religious emotions in European and American history, in other cultures, and in contemporary western societies
